Quirk is now Mirum

Leona Plaatjies


Kitchen Manager & Twilight Fan

Leona Plaatjies joined the crazy Cape Town QuirkStation as Kitchen Manager and all round helping hand in December 2011. Growing up, Leona (or just Ona as she’s affectionately known) might have had her head in the clouds dreaming of being an airhostess but she’s always had her feet firmly on the ground. With the ever graceful and selfless Princess Diana as her role model, we’re not surprised to find that Leona is hardworking, loyal and trustworthy. Taking a lot of pride in the work that she does, Leona loves meeting new people and making new Facebook friends!

In her free time, Leona loves shopping for new clothes (what girl doesn’t?!) and watching the drama unfold in the vampire/werewolf saga that is Twilight. When she can, Leona visits her beloved son and horse who both stay in the ostrich capital, Outshoorn.
