    I have been blessed with intriguing and riveting work throughout my life. As such, I have worked in a variety of fields and have been equipped to wear multiple hats with ease. I have the ability to speak to customers and ensure that a high level of customer service is maintained. I have worked on the client side as well where it was vital that I met deadlines and held a strong level of communication with clients regarding their projects. It was my sole responsibility to ensure my team met client requirements and that our deliverables maintained the highest level of quality as could be achieved. I have worked on brand deals and collaborations between events companies, social media influencers, and sponsorship brand deals. Some of the work I have completed can be seen on @PurpleCloudVapes on Instagram. I have worked in the labour law and conveyancing sphere, where I became equipped to work in risk and compliance through my experience with the legal system. Further, my experience in the legal industry has enabled me to think on my feet, and has trained me to conduct high levels of research that required my work to be accurate. My time working with Synovize enabled me to grasp brand new concepts (to me at least) and complex technology's such as AWS, Security +, ServiceNow, Python and Java. I have been trained to be a thorough and attentive project manager. Further, I have been trained how to manage and oversee a team of 10+ people to ensure that my team met our deliverables ahead of time while maintaining my own responsibilities. I am able to identify bottlenecks in workflows, and teams and believe that it is possible to achieve all things we can think up. In saying that, a good leader is able to identify when a plan needs to be adjusted. I am passionate about my work and have been exposed to challenging tasks that have strengthened my problem-solving skills. I have been determined to work from as early as I could and am passionate about growth. I spend my free time learning as much as I can about the world around me, and furthering my development. Working as a virtual assistant and virtual content creator for numerous international clients in the early days of my working life grew my research abilities, and enabled me to work independently. I have been exposed to a number of business methodologies, automation software and was fortunate enough to be trusted with higher-level administrative duties. I am determined to further my studies. I am passionate about self-improvement. I have learned that technology is the basis if business and if used correctly it can enhance your productivity immensely. I comfortably managed to complete my Bcom Law degree while working full-time and fulfilling freelance contracts in my free time. I work well independently and within a team, as well as I am available to travel if needs be. I have both a South African and a United Kingdom passport. I am no stranger to hard work and am exceptionally driven. I am a quick learner and not shy of a challenge. Working virtually for higher-end executives taught me to first see if I can find a solution to a problem and ask for help only when I am truly unable to solve the problem alone. This grew my ability and understanding of how to break up a task into manageable sections. It further enabled me to become skilled in AWS, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Teams, and Powerpoint.), Gitlab, and various software. I am further skilled in Zoom, Canva, Xero, Google Apps (Docs, Drive, Slides, Sheets & Meets) as well as productivity apps such as Notion, Monday.com, Planyway, MailChimp, and Slack. I have made use of software such as Zoho Recruit, Seamless.IO, Dice, Monster, Indeed, Zoho CRM, Just Call and PipeDrive in my position as a Recruitment Manager. I am capable of navigating client negotiations and have worked with financial and confidential documents through my experience as a conveyancing secretary. I work well alone and within a team. Working closely with my colleagues in a legal environment has grown my communication skills while working virtually taught me to work independently and use my resources effectively. I would love to share more about my work experiences and the skills I could offer your team.

    I'm a dedicated professional who thrives in two distinct but equally rewarding roles. By day, I am a highly skilled lawyer, adept at navigating complex legal landscapes and providing expert counsel to clients. However, when the sun sets, I seamlessly transition into the role of an online English teacher, dedicated to imparting knowledge and empowering students from around the world.

My commitment to professionalism shines through in every aspect of my teaching, from well-structured lesson plans to prompt and constructive feedback. Beyond my legal and teaching expertise, I am a compassionate educator who genuinely cares about the growth and success of my students. I prioritize creating a supportive and motivating learning environment, fostering a sense of confidence and achievement among my learners. By celebrating milestones and encouraging progress, I inspire my students to reach new heights in their language skills. In both my legal and teaching roles, I exemplify the qualities of dedication, adaptability, and professionalism. I am driven by a passion for both fields, constantly seeking opportunities for growth and learning. Whether in the courtroom or the virtual classroom, I consistently deliver exceptional results and leave a lasting impact on those I serve. In my free time, I enjoy immersing myself in literature, exploring new cultures, and pursuing outdoor activities. My diverse interests and experiences enrich my teaching approach and allow me to connect with students on a personal level. I am an invaluable asset, bringing a unique blend of legal expertise and online teaching prowess to both of my roles. With my unwavering commitment to excellence and passion for empowering others, I continue to make a profound difference in the lives of my students and clients alike.
