She completed her OMTC in 2001 and started working in private practice for three years, where after she became a lecturer at the University of the Free State.

Currently she is part of the Women`s Health Course Committee. Together with her mentor, Prof HS Cronje, and later Dr EW Henn, they established a Pelvic Floor Unit in Bloemfontein which involved collaboration between academia and private practitioners, to treat patients with pelvic floor dysfunction and to generate research opportunities.

She has published several papers specifically on NMS-, Sport-, and Women`s Health-related topics in international journals such as Manual Therapy and British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. She also had the privilege to present at several international congresses, the most recent being the WCPT 2017 and Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology World Congress 2017, where one of her presentations was also nominated for an award.
