I was born in Austria and we immigrated to South Africa when I was seven. After finishing school, I became a goldsmith and jewelry designer and started my own business at 23. During the 19 years that I ran my business, I exclusively hired women apprentices to train to become goldsmiths.
It's during those years that I was faced with a situation that caused me deep emotional pain, but this started me off on a 30-year-long life-changing personal growth journey. The insights I gained helped make my mentoring more impactful.
