Sheron Masekoameng

Sheron Mathlatse Masekaomeng is a holder of a master’s degree in psychology, specialising in research consultation psychology. Although her educational background is in criminology and psychology, her interest in the field was sparked by the lack of policy that guides incarcerated mothers who are involved in life crimes, as well as her involvement in a community engagement project at UNISA. Through this project, she gained exposure to evaluation research, social dialogue facilitation, and monitoring and evaluation of activities. Additionally, she worked as an academic independent contractor in higher education, where she facilitated learning topics, set tutorial letters, marked assignments and portfolios, reviewed and updated manuals, and provided academic support. Her areas of interest include education, gender, community sustainability, corrections, sexuality, and social policy and justice.
Sheron is a member of South African Monitoring and Evaluation Association (SAMEA),
Golden Key International Society (GKIS), Health Professions of Council of South Africa (HPCSA)
She has contributed to the field of research by being a co-author and lead author of the following article:
