My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Rotterdam
THNK connection: THNKer , THRIVE - Class 05

Trained as a dancer and studying a bachelor in arts & culture, I had the privilege to work with great and inspiring people in performing arts for over 20 years. Movement is my home. I belief that movement and all its dynamics and shapes is key to progress.

Looking for a meaningful connection between arts & culture and other professional fields, I signed up at the academy for innovative training to train my creative thinking skills. From there I started building towards a way to share creative tools, strategies and perspectives with a wide range of professionals and art-students through coaching, interventions and brainstorms. Since 2019 I started working with my sister, who is a professor in sociology at Erasmus University Rotterdam. We are experimenting and discovering how creative interventions can fuel professional teams to make a change and to make a difference in our rapidly changing world. We operate under the name Caboose.

As a leader I make an effort for growth towards a peaceful and sustainable world. I believe that creativity can help to achieve that. Based in Rotterdam, I live with my dear and inspiring family. Music and sea are our shared sources for life.
