Short CV

Highest qualification:  Doctor in Accounting (with specialization in Auditing) - 2016

Researcher: Business School July 2018

My journey into academia started with my appointment at KOVSIES in July 2005, after returning from a 9 month secondment in the USA and completing my training contract at PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc (PWC).  I have gained experience in the lecturing of Financial Accounting and Auditing since then with specialization in Auditing.  I have taught auditing for all levels of students from first year auditing until honors level, and have also gained experience in the lecturing of Computer Applications.  I am the coordinator of the B.Com.Hons dissertation students and have provided research guidance to 13 honors dissertation students since 2010.  I have been involved in moderation of several auditing related modules as well as an external moderator for auditing modules at the Limpopo University.

I have received the Economic and Management Sciences Faculty award for excellence in teaching and learning in 2011 and have been nominated for this award for the 2015 academic year. 

 I have been involved in the marking of the Public Practitioners Exam (PPE) of the IRBA between 2006 and 2013 and have also been involved in the assessment of the SAICA Assessment of Professional Competency (APC) exam in 2014/2015.  I have been a member of SAICA since 2005. I have also been involved in the 2015 SAICA ITC (Initial Test of Competency) Exam.
