Over the last 10 years I have audited, supported and played an active role in transforming finance departments spanning a variety of industries across the Middle East and Africa, from family owned to multibillion dollar global giants. My main focus has been on, restructuring, streamlining, operations optimisation and post-merger integration. My work ethic is firmly rooted in meticulous planning, strong commitment, a positive mindset, and a notion that "two heads are better than one". I am a KPMG alumna, was admitted by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants in 2010, am a member of the South African Business Council in Dubai and hold an Honours degree in Financial Accounting.

My desire to address the concerns of ambitious companies and the pleasure I discovered working with companies that value innovation and people in it was the main reason that, In 2016, I founded the Dubai based Consultancy The Scalable CFO, offering on demand Financial Management services to startups and SME's. It is through this that I get to strive and put into practise my goals to challenge the way the Finance role is traditionally viewed, to educate others about the importance of Financial Management in a business context, to support passionate people along their journey and to help businesses thrive. 

I'm always thinking and reading about business models and mastering applying a holistic approach to financial management, that is understanding how purpose, strategies, design, technology, human behaviour all contribute to empowerment and success.
