She has been riding motorcycles for more than 40 years, owned and managed a motorcycling academy and has taught over 2000 people to ride and pass their licenses. She has taken many lady riders on motorcycling tours all over the Western Cape and interviewed some of the most influential women in motorcycling in South Africa on their platform Bikers Emporium, co-created with her daughter Beau. 

She spent the last 14 months selling motorcycles for BMW Motorrad and loved riding every model from the entry level 310cc to the bold and beautiful 1800cc R18.
