Dorette Olthof was born and raised in the beautiful historical city of Zutphen in “de achterhoek”. In 1993 she finished the College of Higher Professional Education at Saxion (Economics and Linguistics) in Enschede. Soon after college she started at the University in Enschede. She started working at the Centre for Transport Studies and later also for the Group Marine and Fluvial Systems. Going to Africa with the group (in 2000) and the 2 week English course in Brighton with the secretaries were two nice highlights!
In her spare time, Dorette enjoys reading (Harlan Coben, Nicci French, but also Vestdijk and Shakespeare), going to the movies, meeting her girlfriends somewhere in the Netherlands and going on holidays. She also likes making earrings and drawing. Another passion is photography.
