The Marina da Gama Association Executive Committee (MDGA ExCom) is pleased to introduce our newest member, Dominique Erasmus, who now heads up our Events portfolio.
“I am an energetic, outdoors type of person, so the Cape Town lifestyle suits me to a tee,” says Dominique. Originally from Durban, she grew up in a military family which moved around the country as the job demanded. “As a result, I did most of my schooling up-country, in Pretoria and Settlers.”
After leaving school, Dominique carved out a career in the hospitality industry, specialising in giving her guests the best possible experiences and memories.
Her links with the Marina date back to 2002, when her mother, Rene, bought a house here. “I would move in with her from time to time, between hospitality jobs in different locations. When COVID hit, the industry took a real beating and I moved in with my mother permanently. I subsequently joined Seef as its Marina da Gama letting agent.”
Dominique’s creative energy and talents are already making her a great asset to the ExCom. She has recently announced plans for the inaugural Bridge Fair, a celebration of food, crafts and trade scheduled to take place in Uitsig Park before the MDGA’s Christmas Carol event on 19 December. Find out more here.
On a personal note, Dominique’s next plan is to find her own spot here on the water. For now, she continues to enjoy Marina life to the full. “I’m also a real animal lover. So, I particularly enjoy going for a run or taking the dogs for a walk around the islands to see what we can discover. The Marina really is Cape Town’s best-kept secret.”
Welcome to the team, Dominique!
