Adri grew up near Edenburg, a small sheep and cattle ranching town in the Free State.  Her earliest memories are that of helping her mother on the farm to care for the workers, nursing burns, healing the sick, stitching wounds and even helping with delivering of babies, far from any medical services. There she learned about empathy, caring, and a passion for nursing.

She matriculated at Eunice Girls School in Bloemfontein. After four years of study, she followed her livelong dream and obtained a Diploma in General Nursing Science, Community, Psychiatry and Midwifery from Frere Nursing College in East London.

Over the past 30 years she got married to Hendrik, raised 3 talented boys, Louis, George and Reuben, furthered her studies in Advanced Psychiatric Nursing and other short courses, and multitasked in various facets of employment, whilst being actively involved in their farming business and managing the finances. She is also the proud mother-in-law to Zorana, George’s wife, and in her “free-time” loves to walk on the farm.

She joined the practice in 2022 as our Registered Nurse, and is excited to be part of the team. Most of all, her passion is to follow in the footsteps of our Great Healer, Jesus: doing good, being humble, and serving others… because we care.
