Good architecture must challenge, test and respond to countless variables that need to be analysed and carefully considered. Great architecture must involve our clients dreams and visions as they are critical to architecture becoming a reality. It is their money, their commitment and it is always our honour and a privilege to be involved to work along equally passionate, caring and intelligent clients. We are all working together as a team to deliver tailored built forms and successful developments.
I am a true all rounded Architect. I have extensive and broad ranging experience working in varying types of Architectural Firms, on varying project types (and Scales) and on various project phases. I am highly skilled in Concept Design on larger scale, complex projects. I believe in the importance of Design at all levels in shaping the world.
I am continuously amazed by the potential architecture and design hold as a devise for crafting a healthier world to inhabit. I am passionate about architecture and all things design. I am interested in the relationship between built form, the landscape and the spaces in between. I love collaborating and working as part of a team (and OGE is the best team). I am a mother, a designer and a dreamer.
Each project has to surpass the expectations of the client and the community. My goal is to deliver unique design solutions that are pragmatic – easy to build, cost effective and environmentally responsible.

My passion for documentation and being able to see the progress of a building is one of my biggest drives and why I enjoy my work so much. I love being apart of a team and being able to learn something new everyday. Outside of work I enjoy nothing more than being outside in the sun.
I am a registered architect from South Africa and new to the Sunshine Coast where I aspire to contribute to the OGE Team and it’s family culture. Some of my professional experience include residential, mixed use, retail and community projects and enjoy the occasional furniture design project. Beyond my enthusiasm and dedication, I also have a background in urban, interior and landscape design. For me, architecture should be a tool to enhance both our natural environment and the lives of it’s occupants by being as responsible and sensitive as we can be.
Architecture is a rare form of art where creativity is derived from a fine balance of constraints and opportunities. I am passionate about the potential of design to enrich people’s lives through pleasurable experiences, site responsive, memorable and engaging spaces. Having resided and worked on the Sunshine Coast for 15 years, I have been a key contributor to the evolution of innovative, iconic coastal and regional architecture in both the private and public sectors. I have experience in all realms of project delivery from pre-design / briefing, feasibility analysis, concept design phase through to project documentation phase, tendering and contract administration.
