After being admitted and completing pupillage at the Pretoria Bar in 2008; I practised as an advocate in general litigation for 6 years. Here I appeared in the High Court in various civil matters ranging from Road Accidents Fund claims, commercial law, family law, and medical negligence matters. I soon realised that I wanted to practice in the field environmental law and be out on site and not in the courtroom. I commenced studies in this direction and started gaining the necessary experience in environmental legal consulting and auditing. Being out in the field made me realise that I had found what I wanted to do every day!

I am an Environmental Legal Compliance Consultant with a demonstrated history of working in the environmental services industry. I have dedicated myself to obtaining the necessary qualifications with a Master of Laws - LLM focused on Environmental Law and Governance and a Masters’ degree in Environmental Management from the North-West University, Potchefstroom as well as the 14153 EMS Auditor/Lead Auditor Course Which is IRCA accredited. I aspire to be able to provide clients with a wide range of services and solutions in terms of compliance and continual improvement.

I have experience in environmental compliance consulting as well as compliance auditing. Experience relating to environmental compliance consulting encompasses environmental legal opinions, appeals & reviews, drafting and maintaining legal registers, legal reviews of EIA reports, gap analysis projects and license variation and amendment applications. My auditing experience extends to Environmental Management Programme Assessments, Water Use Licenses, Waste Management Licenses, RODs, Environmental Authorisations and complete Environmental Legal Compliance audits. My experience includes a wide range of industry sectors from mining, waste management, hotels & resorts, production & processing.

I take great pride in my work and find it most rewarding when clients implement actions that promote human behaviour that have positive impacts on the environment and strive to comply with the often complicated environmental regulations. Developing solutions with clients on current environmental issues is where my passion lies.

The Regulations regarding the Exclusion of a Waste Stream or Portion of a Waste Stream from the definition of waste were published yesterday; 18 July 2018 in Notice 715 Government Gazette 41777.
