“My driver is curiosity and development, I studied Economy and Psychology at the University of Utrecht and the University of Tilburg . My passion is finding and taking on challenges. My students will be pressed to work together in a multi-cultural setting and the greatest compliment I can give is when I let them do their work without my involvement, but of course with my necessary coaching.”
