Barbara van der Westhuizen

- Manager of East Rand Mall branch -

My Name is Barbara, I reside in Ravensklip, Boksburg and is a retired Analytical Chemist.

I have taken part in several road races over the last two years. I have the knowledge to assist you in reaching your goal. Should it be training for a specific race, feeling more productive at work and at home or simply enjoying the exercise and the friendly company of the other members.

My hobby is hiking as it is relaxing and builds a healthy spirit. I am an active member of Boksburg Hiking Club and have taken part in various hikes including completing the famous Fish river trial twice.

My Personal Motto is: When Health is absent, Wisdom cannot reveal itself. For me it is not always about the time or to be first, it’s good to have that competitiveness but it is all about making a difference and to meet special friends.

My goal is to manage East Rand Mall branch professionally and to create a happy environment for my members.
