About Me

Welcome to my personal website.  I was born and raised in Walvis Bay, Namibia.  I moved to Cape Town after I matriculated to study Electronics Engineering.  I worked in the electronics field for about 10 years before I made the transition to Information Technology.

My husband, Pieter Fourie and I both work at the South African Astronomical Observatory.  We are very fortunate to work in beautiful surroundings at both Cape Town and Sutherland sites.  We have an adorable son named Edgar, who’s main purpose in life seems to be to keep us on our toes.  🙂








We enjoy the outdoors and go camping as often as we can.  Piet’s motto in life is that the best thing you can do at work, is to plan your next holiday.  We have discovered some amazing places where we had memorable family adventures.   I share these places here and include links to their official websites where possible.  Enjoy!
