After an amazing adventure in Australia - living and working in Sydney - I came back to the Netherlands November 2019. I continued working for my Australian company on a remote base, but now that has come to an end, I look forward to pursuing my career in the Netherlands.
In the last 7 years I reviewed over 1000 CV’s and this showed me how difficult it is to capture someones character, energy and values in a PDF document. Which then made me think of my own resume. I want to do something different. I want you to get to know me without actually meeting me in person (yet). I want to give you more insights of who I am. What drives me, what am I capable of, what do I still have to learn, what are my values and much more. This is why I created my own website.
It's up to you to decide if I am that one person you need in your organisation, but in the meantime, I just hope you enjoy having a look at my website. Thank you for visiting, please be in touch if you have any questions and for now: I wish you a lovely day!
Companies I work(ed) for
I have worked for a diverse range of companies in different industries; mental healthcare, tourism and hospitality, marketing and the biotechnical/pharmaceutical industry. I love experiencing new industries, because I am eager to learn more and it gives an extra challenge to a new role.

2020 - Current
In May 2020, due to the consequences of the corona virus, I lost my job as a Talent Acquisition Specialist for the iQ Group Global. Since I had worked in Recruitment and HR for over 7 years, I decided to use my knowledge on how to successfully apply for a job to help others. Being an entrepeneur has taught me so much already and I only just started. With my courses and coaching I can really make the difference for my customers, something I absolutely love to do.
The iQ Group Global (AUS)
Talent Acquisition Specialist
May 2019 - April 2020
At The iQ Group Global, we are a diverse team of experts who work together to find, fund and develop bio science discoveries into life-changing medical innovations – and take them to market. In August 2019 The iQ Group Global was ranked amongst the top 5 of most innovative bioctech companies in Australia and it is an honor to work for a company that truly makes a difference in peoples lives. Working in an industry that is so different than what I was used to, challenged me in all the right ways. Luckily I learn fast, so I was able to quickly add value to the company by recruiting successful new employees.
Social Deal (NL)
Human Resources Manager | Recruiter & HR Administrator
Sept 2014 - March 2019
When I joined Social Deal in 2014, I was the only person in HR and they had approximately 50 employees. Until then, they didn't really have an HR-department and most of the administration was outsourced. I was a rookie with a high sense of responsibility and big dreams for the company and I am forever grateful for the trust I was given to develop and execute so many exciting projects. When I left, the company had around 180 employees and I am proud that I have been a part of the growth of this company.
Stichting Prisma (NL)
August 2007 - Jan 2014
For over a 100 years Cooperation (Stichting) Prisma has been active in the care and support for intellectual disabled people in the south of the Netherlands. They have approximately 200 locations for people to live and other locations where they offer daily activities under professional guidance.
At the age of 16 I started working in one of day activity centers and soon transferred to a home with 14 clients. For almost 7 years, I have worked with numerous clients supporting them in things varying from daily routine to activities. After I started my full time job at Social Deal, I remained a volunteer for day- and weekend trips. As a young teen starting in this job, I had no clue that I would be learning so much about myself, about true communication, about compassion and that I would literally grow up in this job. It has been one of the most rewarding jobs I have done.
2006 - 2014
Since I had the legal age to work until I started my first full time job, I have worked for several hospitality companies. Restaurants, Hotels, Event locations; I've done it all. Although working here has taught me a lot and made me to the professional I am today, I will not list all my hospitality work on this website. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like to receive more information about my experience in the hospitality industry.
