A company birthed from a desire to share, serve and appreciate all good things in life. Salt & Light is based in Tsumeb, Namibia. An online driven business that offers delicious food, a selection of books and breath-taking blooms.

As it has for many, the global outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted my family and I a great deal. Lives were lost, circumstances changed, and we had no other choice but to thrive. It has been my lifelong dream to become an agent of change to bring flavor (salt) and (light) to my community as a young and educated woman in a space where females are subjected to less important roles due to cultural challenges. 

My objective is to make a meaningful contribution to the development of people in my community, country and continent. I will continue to apply the wealth of knowledge acquired from my Master of Arts in Leading Innovation and Change acquired at St. John York University, United Kingdom, Journalism and Communication Honours Degree at the Namibian University of Science and Technology and over 10 years of experience in the Communication field.  My love for reading, people, cooking and customer service is the foundation of Salt & Light.

I am truly humbled, honored and thankful for this opportunity, which has molded me into a better person, an inspired leader who believes only through change and innovation we can increase capacity to build a sustainable future for the generations to come.

I am grateful to my daughter, family, friends, mentors, team and ultimately God.

Please enjoy your online shopping experience.
