“Take only Memories, leave only footprints.” 

I was fortunate enough to travel to the USA at the young age of 8. I may have been young but after that experience, I knew that the travel bug had gotten to me. It was the first time I saw snow and it felt like something out of a movie. I am absolutely in love with world cultures and all the amazing things, big or small, the world has to offer. 
After that trip to the USA in 2002, I was fortunate enough to visit many other countries such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Italy, Sweden and Latvia. 
I was also lucky enough to work for an international cruise line, for two contracts, which also allowed me to see many wonderful places. 
My first ship allowed me to see places in the Caribbean such as The Bahamas, Haiti, Jamaica, Mexico, Miami, St. Marten, St. Kitts and Puerto Rico. My second Ship took me to Australia, Fiji, Vanuatu, Hawaii, Canada, New Caledonia and the best one yet… ALASKA! 

I believe that the love and passion I have for travelling and experiencing new things is what gets me so excited to work at OVC and help others out there start their journey abroad. One of the quotes I live by is: “Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” Don’t be afraid to take the first step into a life changing experience because as they say, “To travel is to live…”

Hi future travellers,

My journey with OVC started when I applied for the Au pair Netherlands program in 2011 and lived with a wonderful family in Delft, Zuid-Holland for 1 year. During this time I travelled to Belgium, Italy, France, and Germany and extensively within the Netherlands itself. I came back to South Africa in Sept 2012 and realized that travelling is my passion and to help other young travel-minded people like you to take the first step and travel abroad and discover what the world has to offer.

I joined OVC Pretoria from Jan 2014 and every day brings joy seeing other travellers who are very excited and taking the first step in making their dreams a reality. I have also had the opportunity to travel to the USA joining the Au pair Academy in New York and see what our students up to working at Gaylord Texas in Grapevine, Texas and went to Thailand visiting Chiang Mai and experience what our future teachers embrace to become TEFL qualified teachers. 

I have won several awards within OVC, from Top-Performing Consultant in OVC, Hospitality Internship, Au Pair USA and Netherlands, Teach Abroad and Student Work and is passionate about what I do.

Take the first step, apply for our awesome programs and make the world your oyster, you only live once!

“Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show”

My journey with the OVC has taken me from one adventure to the next! Fresh home from my gap years in the United States I began consulting in the early days of 2004! I’ve watched the OVC grow from strength to strength, and to proudly say we are the leaders in SA youth travel! I’m currently the franchise owner of OVC Durban North, East Rand, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West and Pretoria. We have fantastic crew members countrywide, eager to help young travellers reach their dreams of exploring the world just as we have had the opportunity to!

My passion, travels and knowledge of the United States culture have put me in the role of managing OVC American programs: Au Pair USA, Student Work USA, USA Hospitality Internships and Camp America. I personally handle each and every applicant that partakes in these programs. My role ensures all our young travellers are well taken care of when on their American adventure!
My Gap year afforded me the opportunity to live in the United States for 2 years as an Aupair and to travel extensively throughout the USA. My travels have taken me through to the UK and Ireland, Africa, Middle East and one of my favourite areas, the Far East! Travelling allows you to experience new cultures, new people, new adventures and make lifetime memories. 
To all those inspired to travel, to find new adventures and to discover themselves, I encourage you all to take the steps I have. You will never regret your decision to venture out of South Africa!
