Being born and raised in The Netherlands (that small flat country at the other side of the sea of England), my parents took me on a holiday to Austria when I was about 7 years old. And I fell in love with the mountains and I said to my father ”Daddy, when I’m older, I will live in the mountains”.
And when I got older I went climbing and hiking in Austria and Italy every year and in 2010 I signed up for a stage to climb the Mont Blanc. And than… I fell in love again. Love at first site with my High Mountain Guide! Six months later, I moved to France and I’ve lived here ever since. And when your husband is a Mountain Guide, you need to know how to ski. So I learned to ski 5 years ago. In summer I like to go walking with my dog, biking and I really love climbing and Via Ferrata.
In The Netherlands I worked as an audit controller for an insurance company. After a few years living in France I really started to miss the office live and the contact and working with others. So I applied at New Generation to use all my language skills.
