I have a deep inner drive to support people in stepping into their full potential and creating a life of purpose. It's such a waste if people don't fully own their passion and talents they can contribute to the world!
Before starting my coaching practice, I worked as an interim manager in the Dutch government for almost a decade. In my many assignments in various ministries and municipalities, I worked alongside people with great leadership scope and huge influence. This taught me invaluable lessons about courageous communication, integrity, and leadership. It also showed me that a staggering amount of very influential leaders don't really have the skills or the courage to be authentic in their leadership and to speak and live their truth without alienating others. It became my mission to change that.
I love to work with passionate people who feel driven to positively impact the world. My coaching helps them connect to their intuitive mind and grow into their personal power and true potential. I am a certified Transformational Presence Coach and hold an MA in literature and I am the author of The Mindful Guide to Conflict Resolution.
Living in Amsterdam with my husband and two children, I love both the buzz of the city and the stillness of our little vacation cottage near the sea. I practice Kundalini yoga and meditation to stay centered, and I enjoy running, singing, and cooking.
