"Being the holder of an MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice and a BSc in Psychology, has allowed me the benefit of being able to apply Psychological concepts through a criminological lens. I specialize in the application of research methodologies in the furtherance of the strategic process, which is vital to private companies and government agencies alike.
I find great pleasure in embracing new challenges as these are the stepping stones to the development of new competencies. My experience stems from the facilitation of Psychology courses, development of programmes for at risk youth and my tenure at various government agencies."
