Elani grew up in northern Limpopo Province of South Africa. Situated only 60 miles west of the world renowned Kruger National Park, one of the epicenters of wild life in South Africa.
Her passion for sports, swimming and the outdoors, led to her decision to study for Sports Psychology and graduating with her bachelors degree.
She made her entry into yachting in 2010, and has since worked on both private and charter yachts, cruising Americas East Coast, Bahamas, Caribbean and the Mediterranean. Beginning her career as a Stewardess, but finding her passion on the exterior and in the pilot house, she began dedicating her time to course work, and has cultivated a dream of one day becoming a Captain.
Elani’s ever present smile, dedication and professionalism, contributes to making her one of our favorite crew members.
