I am Tina Cronje, but also known as ‘Nana’ to close friends.
I was born in Accra, but grew up in London where I lived until 1997 when I moved to Milton Keynes with my family. I am married, with four now adult children and a grand daughter.
I started my career as a Medical Secretary before retraining as a Lecturer in Further Education. In 2002, I qualified as a Social Worker and since that time, I have worked for a number of Local Authorities in childcare. Currently I work as a Fostering Social Worker and also sit as an Independent Member for a private fostering agency. In addition, I am also a member of the Parish Council for St Michael’s Church in Aspley Heath near Woburn Sands.
Socialising is something that I love to do, so I really enjoy meeting people and making new friends. In my spare time, I also like to do a little bit of travelling and lots of cooking.
