I am experienced in dealing with expats, global nomads and refugees, as I grew up and worked in various countries.
I am interested in innovation and development. Within several universities and colleges of higher education, I have developed courses (doctor-patient communication: Maastricht University; post HBO managers in Healthcare: Hogeschool Sittard; Organization and Information Science: Noordelijke Hogeschool Leeuwarden).
In 2012 I received my PhD in development of multicultural identity at the University for Humanistics in Utrecht.
In addition, to my involvement at Van Ede & Partners I work as a healthcare psychologist, body-oriented psychotherapist and coach applying the ‘Self Knowledge Method’. I am also involved in the Dialogical Self Academy as a researcher, trainer, writer and speaker at international conferences.
