Petronella Kapp


My name is Petronella Kapp (Perch). I’m 56 years old. Am single but in a relationship.  I am a Health Promotions Officer. I qualified as a Registered Nurse (General, Midwifery, Psychiatry and Community) in 1993. I have been nursing since 1980, having first been an Enrolled Nurse. I worked mainly in Medical wards and Psychiatry.  Unfortunately, due to a problem with my leg and the long hours of work I was boarded 12 years ago.

I have volunteered with the Foundation since 2012 as a nurse.

In 2016 when the previous HPO resigned I worked on a contract basis from 11 September to 11 December.  I have been presently at the Foundation since February 2017.07.14

I enjoy meeting all new challenges given to me with vigour and strive to make the Foundation known in Port Elizabeth.

My motto is “A mind free of negatives produces positives.”
