Background

I am a driven and passionate PR professional with a strong background in journalism.

As a former journalist I can work fast and translate complex matters into reports and copy that appeal to a wide audience. I love coming up with creative stories for various formats and most of all I love hearing about positive impact on either people or our planet.

I am fluent in English and Dutch, (good in French and German).

In my spare time I try to keep fit by running and swimming and tidying up after my two children.
