The entrepreneurial bug bit while she was still in school where she sold sandwiches for pocket money. Later, as a medical student, she went on to start a retail business selling leather handbags to fellow students, lecturers, teachers and nurses. The proceeds from the sale of this business are what provided a springboard into a much wider business. After graduating, she established a medical centre which went on to service over 40,000 people.
Her business empire now spans healthcare, technology, logistics, mining and energy. She is one of the founding members and Group Executive Chairperson of Community Investment Holdings, Chairperson of Jasco Electronics Holdings and Executive Chairperson of Afrocentric Investment Corporation and Air Liquide Healthcare.
