The NuYu Team
Owner / Managing Director
Sandra Fenner, the Owner of NuYu slimming & wellness, is the daughter of late Dr. Jan Botha, founder of Slender Wonder, who developed the program over 45 years of research and practical application. She worked with Dr Botha in the USA as a Slender Wonder Consultant for 2 years and when she returned to South Africa, established NuYu in 2006 and worked as the Consultant and Coach together with her team and several doctors for 13 years. Handing over the coaching reigns to her daughter Zoë Fenner, she now enjoys the role as Managing Director of the company.
General Manager / Coach
Keeping the Slender Wonder legacy in the family, Zoë Fenner, daughter of Sandra, became part of NuYu in 2013 when she took on the role of Office Assistant. With a passion for people and seeing lives change, Zoë stepped into the more serious role of General Manager and Coach in 2018, where her love for helping others continues to grow. Whether its day or night, Zoë is available for support.
Dr Johané Botha
Dr Johané Botha (no relation to Dr Jan Botha) is NuYu’s consulting doctor for the Slender Wonder Program. With an MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine and a passion for health and fitness she is the perfect fit for our practice, which she joined in 2020. Dr Botha has further branched out into aesthetics, now offered at NuYu.
Office Liaison / Social Media
The first face you will see when you walk through our door is our Office Liaison, Amy Auer, who will greet you with the brightest smile that will make anyone’s day. Amy has been part of the NuYu family since 2017 when she assisted us casually. In 2018 she joined the team full time and has since also taken up the task of heading our social media.
“Something smells delicious” is a sentence often heard from clients who walk through our door, which is the result of the hard work and dedication of our NuYu Frozen Meals chef, Anetha Qumza. She has been with the NuYu family since 2008 and is a vital part of our team.
