I am married with two children and lives in Tzaneen, a small town about an hour and half from the Kruger National Park. I am originally from Tzaneen. I studied and qualified in Business administration at Pretoria University in 2000.
In 2007 Dawn Pearson (my business partner) visited South Africa on a volunteer project to work with vervet monkeys. She was appalled that from the money she had paid only 30% of it reached the sanctuary and therefore she wanted to start a company whereby the money is used for the projects.
She approached me to join her setting up an honest company whereby volunteers receive immediate answers to their questions and are looked after every step of the way.
We hope that through Vets and Wildlife we can achieve these goals in helping Vet students in particular realise their dreams at an affordable price and give them a wonderful experience to look back on.
