After graduating at the Stella Adler Studio, I stayed in New York for an additional year acting in various theatre productions. I returned to Holland in 2010 and continued to work as an actress all mediums. To view examples of my work, click here. In 2013 I decided to make corporate roleplaying my core business. And this is what I have been doing since!
After my internship at Beagle Creative Marketing Agency in 2005, I was asked to stay on as a junior consultant. While finishing my education I worked with Beagle for companies like Sara Lee and Philips. After my move to New York I worked as a project manager for Peep Insights at Anomaly. In 2010 I returned to the Netherlands where I worked as a freelance marketing consultant. I collaborated with Kisk, Post Research and DHW research. We worked for companies like Heinz, Unilever and Arla.
I am passionate about organizational learning and development. Enabling other people to realize their potential energizers me as a roleplay actor and facilitator. At the same time I constantly strive to develop my own skills. I attend workshops and read many books on topics like ‘Non-violent Communication’, ‘Crucial Conversations’ and ‘Change management’. In 2011 I completed my yoga teacher training with a 200 RYS certification. This allows me to incorporate mindfulness exercises into my work.
