How it all started
I was attracted to the OT field while watching pediatric OT’s at a school for children with cerebral palsy in South Africa where I lived. Seeing their passion in giving freedom to these children whose bodies limited their independence, sparked a desire in me, that has only grown into a wildfire through the years! My husband and I moved to the States in 1996 with a traveling therapy company, with plans of being here for a couple years. Well, as God would have it, we are now naturalized citizens with 3 American children. I stepped out and started Jabulani Kids in 2009, after having worked in several local pediatric clinics, focusing on early intervention in the homes. In 2014, we opened our present clinic in Kernersville, NC, adding more OT & non-OT staff to our Jabulani Family.
My vision, as we grow, is for us to never lose our down-to-earth, personalized approach, valuing each child & family that we serve; connecting families to each other & to resources available; lifting the burdens & stress, so that there’s more joy and happiness in their lives- Jabulani! (Zulu translation- Rejoice!)
