Juanita is a Hydrologist and Spatial Scientist with 27 years experience in the water resources sector. Twenty-four of those years was in the South African Department of Water Affairs. She was involved in projects applying hydrological modeling, water quality analysis, monitoring network design and the provision of spatial solutions for aquatic habitat assessments and information to support catchment- and national-scale decision making.
