My journey as a South African model has been incredible and opened so many doors for me around the world to pursue my true passions. I am currently spending my days hosting some of South Africa's most loved television shows, playing dress up with my daughters and keeping my friends and followers up to date with my latest finds.
I was approached by local television program, Pasella, about the position as presenter. I accepted with open arms and instantly fell in love with presenting. I adore meeting new and interesting people, listening to their views and opinions and creating a calm and friendly atmosphere in a room full of cameras. I traveled all over South Africa and hosted two seasons of kykNET’s Boer Soek ‘n Vrou. I am so proud to now have my own talk show on Via where I get to sit down with the most interesting and inspiring people.
Modelling has recently taken a backseat as I pursue my career as a presenter and treasure my time as a mother. At 18 I got my big break when Guess signed me for an international campaign followed by a feature in South African Sports Illustrated Swimwear Edition. I have been featured in various South African and International Fashion Magazines and honoured to have been voted The Sexiest Woman in South Africa by FHM readers.
I only recently started blogging. I get a lot of questions from my wonderful followers on social media about motherhood, my career, my beauty regime and my daily outfits. That is why I decided to start a blog to keep my friends and followers up to date with my life, offer advice and share tips.
Being the mother of the beautiful and bright Katerien, Elise and Elsa has been my most exciting, challenging and rewarding role thus far. My husband, Ernst Joubert, and I are truly blessed to have been chosen to raise these three amazing girls. They make us love, laugh and cherish each day.
