The world is certainly different from what it used to be a decades ago. Working collaboratively , rich in our diversity, surely we can leave the world in a better state than which we found it.

Professional Summary

I have completed a BA Public Management and Governance degree from the University of Johannesburg and got a distinction in Public Management and Governance.
During my time at university, I participated in the Global Enterprise Experience competition where I won the University of Otago Business School Journal Award for demonstrating individual leadership skills.

With being good at communicating with people, during the competition I was required to step up into the leadership role when our group leader decided to abandon us.
Currently, I work at KHUSA Consulting as a Corporate Business Assistant where I review low-income medical schemes, analysis holistic corporate medical scheme, provide claims vs contribution analyses, ATB member identification, plan mapping, provide member support and identifying members who can save money by downgrading their medical plans and increasing their Net Replacement Ratio by adding the savings towards Retirement Fund. I have also been privileged to be charged with the lead responsibility of setting up our CRM.

In addition, I assist the executive when required and assist in tender bid submissions, attending tender briefing, engaging with service providers and preparing presentation for the Healthcare Team
