Q: Tell us a bit about yourself and your history as an athlete.

A: I’m a Physiotherapist by profession, running two physiotherapy departments at two specialised TB hospitals. As a child growing up, I was very athletic and active. I played all sports and often found myself playing cricket, soccer and games with the boys during school intervals and holidays. I always made it onto the school athletic and sports teams, competing in sprints, long distance running, long jump, high jump, netball, etc. I never had a problem with my weight or health growing up. I used to eat like a horse and still have a healthy weight because I was so active. I excelled in sports and academics. When I had completed my Honours degree in Physiotherapy at UWC and started working, I found myself being less active than what I used to be. However, I still stayed somewhat fit. I got married and life was good.

Q: At what point did you realise you wanted a makeover and decide to enter the USN Makeover Challenge?
