She studied classical Ballet and Dance at the Pretoria Technikon (a Technical University) School of Performing Arts, and earned her Dance Teaching credential from the Royal Academy of Dancing with Distinction and Merit. She taught at her own ballet school for 10 years and earned certification as an Aerobic Instructor in the early 1990s (and was awarded most outstanding student), followed by a certification in Personal Fitness training a few years later.
In 2001, she became Group Training Manager with Virgin Active Health Group in South Africa. She also worked as a Master Trainer, educating other instructors in core and functional fitness, and Event Managing fitness conferences and other fitness based events.
A move to the UK in 2004 gave her the opportunity to study Pilates with the Body Control Pilates method in London. She also studied Pre- and Post-Natal Fitness, and worked as a matwork instructor in White Waltham, Braywood, and Maidenhead in Berkshire.
Upon arriving in the U.S., she successfully earned her certificate as a Personal Trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and ran a franchise of a popular mom with baby stroller based exercise program, furthering her study in Pre- and Post-Natal exercise.
