Angela joined IFAASA in its setup phase as a Director. Her primary objective is to drive the marketing activities of the group and build awareness of infertility across Southern Africa. The IFAASA team’s most challenging task is to break the silence that exists around infertility. Angela’s own experience of how lonely the infertility journey can be has increased her passion to build a community where knowledge can be shared freely and openly, while removing the social stigmas attached to the predicament. With over 20 years of corporate marketing experience Angela brings a wealth of knowledge to the team. She has a young daughter, via egg donation and she can be reached directly at email@example.com.

She manages a successful Real Estate office and lives with her husband of 12 years, their 5 year old son and 3 dogs. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
