I'm registered as a qualified nurse with general, psychiatry and midwifery. I worked in casualty at the mine hospital and psychiatry hospital. I also worked in a general hospital, attending to medical, surgical, orthopedic as well as maternity cases. I gained experience in HIV/AIDS programs when I worked as ARV clinic project Manager. I was also exposed to occupational health settings, when I was doing Employee Health and Wellness and medical surveillance, as a result I'm currently studying towards my B-Tech degree in Occupational Health and Management.
