She retired from law in 2006 and established a successful retail business, but her heart has always been set on advancing her interest in environmental conservation work, since her involvement with the amalgamation of the numerous environmental agencies of KwaZulu-Natal, including the previous Natal Province and the old Natal Parks Board, with their laws requiring updating in accordance with new international environmental conventions and the Constitution of South Africa, formulating the new KwaZulu-Natal Nature Conservation Services and its Board, with appropriate legislation and Regulations.
