I was born in The Netherlands. After highschool I went to Nursing school first, and while working I specialized in both Oncology and Pediatrics. After 15 years of being a Nurse I decided to get educated in Coaching, at the Academy for Coaching and Counselling in Amsterdam. Since 2010 I am a certified Coach and I'm the proud owner of Hammertime Coaching Amsterdam Coaching. I coach Millenials/ Twenty-somethings in Mindful Quarter-life transitioning. We moved to America in 2011 and I love it here. I have a great husband, 2 lovely daughters and a very sweet and old black Labrador. I love walking, running, painting, art, reading, sailing, yoga, meditation and of course my friends and family. People know me as an open, honest and passionate person who listens actively. I am authentic, reliable, direct and most of all friendly with a healthy sence of humor. I am convinced that my 15 years of experience in the field of Healthcare are very valuable to my work as a coach. In America I did a Yoga teacher training for Kids and earlier this year I did a MBSR (mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) training at Umass Medical School. I'd love to share this experience with you all. Back in the Netherlands now (2015).
