Biography

I have entered the realm of academia in 2006, where I began lecturing the entry – level Marketing module. Since then I have been coordinating and lecturing this module in tandem with the 3rd year Marketing modules at Howard College and Westville Campus. Moreover, I have lectured modules within the Discipline of Management and Entrepreneurship during my inception, thereafter specialising in the field of Marketing. In addition to Teaching, I have supervised at Honours and Masters levels and attended and participated in conferences both locally and abroad; I enjoy networking with fellow experts from other institutions.

I have also published within the academic journal – Journal of Economics and Behavioral Studies. Furthermore, philanthropy and social well-being are one of my greatest concerns, ergo, I am affiliated with charitable organisations within the Durban region in relation to education, support for individuals in need and contributions to disaster-relief campaigns.
