I studied psychology at the University of Twente (main subject: Mental Health Promotion). Both my bachelor’s and master’s thesis were about the intervention Op Verhaal Komen (resp. quantitative and qualitative/narrative). After graduation I worked for Tactus (addiction care) and the department of Psychology, Health and Technology (PHT). At the department I have been involved in the online intervention of Op Verhaal Komen and the Positive Educative Program. Furthermore I was involved in education: as a tutor in module 4, as a teacher in the courses psycho diagnostics and narrative psychology and as a coordinator for the course applied positive psychology.
Currently I am working as a junior researcher in the project Online Life Story Book, an intervention for persons with early dementia and their informal caregivers.
