Director of Resources

Global Office

In March 2019, I joined Wetlands International as the Head of Resources. In this role, I lead finance, human resources, systems and processes to continuously improve their value for the network organisation.

Before joining Wetlands International, I worked in management roles in finance, HR, facilities and various projects for global-oriented organizations in England, Cameroon, Mozambique, and the Netherlands like Rainforest Alliance/UTZ, Deltares, GeoDelft, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS) and SNV.

I have always been passionate about working together for sustainability. Wetlands International gives me a great opportunity to work again for the water sector and to combine my content knowledge with my management experiences.

I completed MSc in Economics from Groningen University and BSc in Business Economics from Hoge school, The Hague. Besides, my three-year ITIP training made me aware of other strengths and values such as leadership with (com)passion and the balance between head and heart.
