Zerina Richards, our Advisor Sales Channel Manager started her journey with Bestmed almost four years ago. Get to know her a little better.

  1. How long have you been at Bestmed? 
    I started at Bestmed in February 2018.
  2. What encouraged you to join Bestmed
    I had engaged with the Scheme in my capacity as an Advisor and I was very happy with the product offering, as well as the access to all departments when I needed assistance. I had already created working relationships with many of the staff members prior to my appointment at Bestmed.
  3. What is the best thing about your job? 
    The best thing is engaging with my team and advisor community daily, setting goals and targets and achieving these on a regular basis. I also enjoy learning from the experiences, whether it be positive or negative experiences. I believe that we have to continue learning and growing and try to utilise opportunities for growth.   I love to see team members grow and develop as well.
  4. Give us a short bio about your career history. 
    My career began many years ago as a nurse at Addington Hospital in Durban. I moved to Johannesburg in 1996 and worked at Garden City Clinic where I was offered an opportunity to join their Billings team. This opened doors into the administration side of healthcare. I then moved onto Qualsa Healthcare, Prosperity Health and then on Genesis Healthcare Consultants and Alexander Forbes.
  5. Tell us an interesting fact about yourself. 
    I have been a counsellor for Operation Smile where I engage with mum’s who have babies born with harelip and cleft palates as my son, who is now 24 years old, was born with a harelip and cleft palate and syndactyle of his hands and feet.
  6. What are your hobbies? 
    Gardening and watching sports.
  7. What is part of your daily routine that you look forward to every day? Speaking with my team members.
  8. What is your favourite motto? 
    BE KIND!
