ABOUT JOAN:

From a young age I had an interest in nutrition and health care, and in 1985 I qualified as a Breast Feeding Counsellor with La Leche League, a position I held for 10 years.

In 1991 I became a shareholder in a wholefood company, with Mary-Ann Shearer of The Natural Way, which led me to studying, and successfully completing, a Health and Nutrition course. I went on to open my own nutrition business and during this time period I also wrote a booklet on nutrition, and hosted a live nutrition programme on a local radio station, as well as hosting radio interviews, and addressing meetings outside of South Africa in Namibia, Swaziland, and the United Kingdom. I also attended several international nutrition conferences with the Aim Companies in USA, Canada, Australia and the UK.

I was one of the inaugural committee members of the Business Women’s Association, Pretoria, and also held the position of Vice Chairlady. My portfolio included member recruitment, event organising, and hosting of the monthly meetings when the Chairlady was unavailable.

During 2003 I became more involved with breast cancer, and took on the task of arranging, and hosting, charity functions to increase the awareness of breast cancer.

In 2006 together with a multi-disciplinary team of doctors (a Radiologist, a Doctor practising in Oncology and two Surgeons) we established a breast cancer fund. I am one of the Director’s and also Events Co-ordinator, for the Eastleigh Breast Care Fund (non-profit organisation). One of my first roles was to source and secure sponsorship, and to organise Eastleigh Breast Care Centre’s charity events. It was at one of these functions I met the then Deputy Minister of Health for South Africa, Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, who is very supportive of breast cancer, and related issues.

I presently run my nutrition centre at the Eastleigh Womens’ Health Centre in the east of Pretoria. My passion being the education of women in taking responsibility for their own health and learning how to make wiser choices and exercising more discernment in the way they nourish their families. My focus is also on encouraging women that ‘menopause’ need not be a ‘midlife crisis’ but can be a natural and exciting transition in this season of her life.

My greatest reward is to make a difference by improving the quality of the lives of the people who come across my path.

I also consider it to be a privilege to have been nominated by the international company Difference Makers as one of the100 top women Difference Makers in South Africa.
