Hi, I graduated in 1987 from the Hotel School in Groningen. I worked 4 years as head of the reception at Center Parcs in Dalen. After my move to Twente I began my job as a management assistant at "Conference Hotel Drienerburght", University of Twente
(now: U-parkhotel). After 9 years I switched to another job: office manager of the group "Applied Mechanics" (ET). Another 9 years later I found a new job in being an office-manager at the ECTM (Experimental Centre for Technical Medicine), one of the centers of expertise of the University of Twente and part of the training Technical Medicine (TM). Since 2015 I have been working as office manager for two departments that are strongly connected to the training TM; Clinical Neurophysiology (CNPH) and Cardiovascular and Respiratory Physiology (CRPH).
In 2018 I graduated as a Vitality- and Lifestyle coach and started my own practice. https://www.praktijkvitavitalis.nl/
In 2019 I followed the coaching training ''Coaching in change'' and in 2021 the training "Coaching for advanced coaches", both at the University of Twente. I coached students who participated in the Honours programme.
I am interested in the mental well-being of people and I also actively participate in training and courses in this area. Hubert Consult in Leiden has trained me as a 'confidential counselor for undesirable behavior'; I hold this position too at the University of Twente. In 2021 I followed the international training MHFA (Mental Health First Aid) and the training "Active Bystander".
