Career coach / TMA talent professional
“You can’t direct the wind, but you can adjust the sails.”
“With the conviction that every person has the ability to develop, provided the circumstances to support this, I have been guiding people who want to develop for more than 25 years. This often goes without a well-defined “where” and “how”: it revolves around the question “why?”.
In my profession as a career professional, I feel privileged to be on the sidelines of this development process and to support people in this.
By asking the right questions, being genuinely interested in you as a person, giving you my attention and offering at least one listening ear, we start working together.
At the beginning of my career I worked at the Dutch National Police. After that I got to know commercial job placement at an employment agency where I worked for many years. After working at a career consultancy agency I eventually became an independent career coach. I completed my higher vocational education in HR management, my post- higher vocational training in career advice as well as my post-higher vocational training in talent management.
During my career and life I came across all kinds of “ups” and “downs”. My biggest challenge was learning to deal with a chronic illness; from “I can’t live a normal life with that” to discovering new possibilities and opportunities. I believe in opportunities for everyone.
It gives me a lot of energy when my coachees find a job that suit them. For that reason I joined Dynamisch Bureau. Everyone matters and deserves an opportunity to develop. I wholeheartedly endorse that!”
