After a communication study I started as a TV editor. Gripped by the enormous learning curve, I was subsequently able to work as a consultant / media trainer at PR agency Capita. There I worked at the interface of corporate and marketing communication, including for clients such as Sara Lee, Vodafone, UTZ Certified, Wageningen University and Microsoft. After a short time with the government, my wish to apply the knowledge acquired to society was further fulfilled at Aidsfonds - Soa Aids Nederland. Here I enjoy working as a press officer and strategic communication advisor. In the last 10 years, in addition to communication work, I developed into a professional coach with various leadership training and education.
