Welcome to President Gaylen
|PDG Mark Doyle, James Kingston & DG Anneas Balt|
The newly inducted President Gaylen Coelho, a young and dynamic personality, is committed to continue the good work of the club. She fully supports Rotary International’s vision to concentrate more on sustainable projects. Gaylen said she and the Rotarian's will encourage businesses and other organisations to form partnerships in order to increase the difference that Rotary makes in our community. She was an exchange student in 2004 to Germany through the Klerksdorp Rotary Club.
Gaylen studied BSc Medical Science at the University of Pretoria but decided that running her own company is much more challenging, she is not only involved with a promotion company but she also has her own travel agency. She is married to Miguel a mining Engineer. They both love travelling, good food and wine tasting and are often seen at all the “hot spots” Gaylen is totally in love with animals and would move heaven and earth to protect those in her care. Her pet hates are people with bad table manners and late arrivals. Miguel loves DIY jobs around the house but true to his profession he dislikes disorganised and unprepared people and situations.
Gaylen understands Rotary business and the importance of membership, in fact so much so, that she and Miguel are now expecting their first baby. Congratulations to the ‘swell’ couple!
