I was born in Dublin in the Republic of Ireland. Following my Primary Education I entered a religious order to complete my Intermediate and Leaving Certificates while at the same time training to be a teacher.
My studies included Child Psychology, Philosophy, Theology and Teaching Methods under the guidance of a Master Educator.
In 1978 I got married and immigrated to South Africa. I spent the greater part of my career in the life assurance industry until my retrenchment in 1998.
I have a small training and consultancy business called "AMSI and Associates cc" specialising in ODETDP, Management/Supervisory/Disciplinary interventions as well as training for skills development and EE committee members .
I am qualified and registered as an SDF, Assessor, Moderator, Facilitator, Course Developer and Verifier with various SETAS.

I am a member of the Ethics Institute of SA (MS 499/2010) and an ‘Affiliate’ Member of the Chartered Management Institute (CMI)
