In the year 1998, I matriculated with a distinction. I thereafter forwarded my application to the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal Medical School and was proud to receive my acceptance in 1999. My undergraduate training was completed in 2004; I graduated with Honours.
In the year 2005, following the attainment of my qualification, I performed a one-year internship at the King Edward Hospital. My community service duties as a Doctor were fulfilled subsequently when I worked in Port Shepstone Provincial Hospital. Thereafter, I completed my Diploma in Advanced Cardiac life support.
At this stage, I realised that my passion for medicine lied within the areas of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, which led me to join the Registrar training program at the Natal Medical School in 2007.
In 2009 I received the award for " Best Clinical Researcher" following my postgraduate research. I went on to complete my Masters of a degree in Medicine - Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 2010, under the mentorship of renowned researcher Professor J Moodley.
In 2011 I qualified as the Youngest Gynaecologist in South Africa after having written the South African examinations early.
I proceeded to work at the R K Khan Hospital in Chatsworth, where I was involved in bringing down and analysing the maternal mortality rate. During this time I was also conducting lectures in my field of work at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal on a part-time basis.
I subsequently commenced my PhD in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Pre-Eclampsia and eventually graduated in April 2015.
Currently, I still Fulfill part-time duties as a lecturer at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal, amidst running a private practice and conducting further research.
