About

I  have a background in communication and organizing events in the tourism branche. After finishing my BSc in Communication, I lived on Ibiza for a couple of years. I managed a Bed & Breakfast and a company that rents old cars (2CVs) and organizes customized events such as incentives and weddings. My duties varied from organizing all these different types of events to devising and implementing a variety of marketing and communication concepts.

After working on Ibiza for a couple of years, a world trip of one year and a job at a commercial company, I decided that I wanted to do something with a little more depth. For that reason I went back to university and completed a MSc in Communication Science focused on health communication and marketing at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. After finishing my master, I started working at the Adams lab, where I am taking care of the communication and the organization of events.
