What is important to you?

Family, friends and happiness.

What is something quirky about you?

I have a thing with pineapples and palm trees, they make me smile when I see them. And as Dutch as I am, I go everywhere by bicycle.

What is it about the recruitment industry that motivates you?

I love meeting new people and assisting them in their job search, to learn everything about a business, identify their needs and connect them with the right candidate. My goal as a consultant is to make business stronger and help people in making the next step in their career.

My teammates would describe me as…

Friendly, fun and a keen cyclist. I love all outdoor activities, socialising and a good red!
