Executive Committee 2017/2018

Marieanna le Roux  (with Gert, Anna and Nonna)

Chair

I joined Pets as Therapy in 2006. My boxer at the time, Pietie, and I used to visit at Horizon House in Stellenbosch until she crossed the rainbow bridge in November 2012. I have been a staff member of the psychology department at the Stellenbosch University since 1992 and doing research is part of my job. I became interested in human-animal interaction and started doing research in the field. In March 2013 I completed my PhD studies with the title Die effek van ’n troeteldier-ondersteunde leesprogram op die leesvaardighede van graad 3 leerders in ’n Wes-Kaapse laerskool [The effect of an animal-assisted reading programme on the reading skills of grade 3 children in a Western Cape primary school]. Since 2012 I have been the chair of Pets as Therapy and have now started visiting with my new boxer, Anna, at a local old age home.
