My strengths stem from the fact that in South African rural areas there is a dearth of public funds to service the community.I have worked and successfully treated patients with pure manual techniques stemming from Maitland, therapeutic exercise etc. In South Africa we have a rainbow nation, I have learnt the power of diversity and adapted adeptly to different cultures and creed.I have a rich experience of working in a dynamic and multidisciplinary team.Another strength is my willingness to work and my dedication as I believe physiotherapy is more than just a career it is a passion and the gateway to rehabilitating our patients back into their community.I am a quick learner and I put my profession on a pedestal beyond anything else.I am passionate about working with Physiotherapy Students and enjoy teaching them the skills I was endowed with.
