Esmé qualified in 1988 as a Registered Nurse and a Midwife. She worked at Mediclinic as well as Ampath for a few years and thereafter managed her own primary healthcare clinic for 12 years as an NGO in Limpopo.
She then decided to move to Gauteng where she managed a primary healthcare pharmacy clinic for five years and then proceeded to specialise in bio-puncture and mesotherapy. This sold her to the skincare industry.
She worked at a few medical skincare clinics before she opened her own skincare practice. While building this into a successful business, she also worked part-time at a retirement village where she managed their primary healthcare clinic and did locum work at various pharmacies.
In 2017, after 10 years of practising medical skin care therapy and bio-puncture, she decided to join the Renewal Institute team, as this would offer her clients more treatment options. Being a part of this team also provides her with different fields of interest to herself as a practitioner.
