Chrismaine Stoop

Scholar co-ordinator

I was born and bred in Cape Town.  I previously worked at a Direct Selling Company for 25 years as a Debtors Manager.  After having a child late in life I decided to stay at home to raise her.  When my child was old enough for school it was the perfect opportunity to re-start my career life.

I was introduced to the Kay Mason Foundation and has since been blessed with an oppurtunity to assist in building leaders for our future.  Being Kay Mason Foundations' scholar co-ordinator has been very rewarding and I look forward to a long and positive association.
