Work History

Philatelic Dealer

- I owned and operated a mail-order importing business called Cape Stamps. I imported stamps from South and South West Africa and Great Britain and retailed them throughout South Africa. I specialized in rarer stamps, but also carried current stock as part of my inventory.
1986 - 1994
My ex husband and I owned a marine importing business named Sea Gear We represented a number of American, Canadian, Dutch and British companies within the South African boating industry. Products included propane stoves, electrical and charging equipment and desalination equipment. Sea Gear supplied boat-builders and retail stores throughout the country.
I controlled the importing, customs tariff classifications and ran the showroom. My ex husband had another business during this time, doing electrical installations on yachts.
1994 - 2004
My ex husband and I ran a weekly charter yacht in the USVI for over 10 years. My duties included planning of menus and finances. Guests could choose between four different charter prices. Amongst these was a gourmet charter.
I prepared meals, cleaned the yacht, cared for the needs of guests and assisted with deck work and maintenance. This included taking guests on snorkeling adventures.

2004 - 2009
The charters were run by an on-board crew, during this time. My job was liaising with guests and crew, planning of menu's and water-sports. I also handled all the finances for charter provisioning, including crew salaries.
