Account executive

For a while now, important political developments and how policy is really shaped fascinate me immensely. I have witnessed political processes on all levels; during my internship at the VNG, think tank year at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and previous job at the Province. As account executive I support and advise clients in various sectors. I look forward to interpreting different political and societal challenges.

Personal

In my spare time I am an active member in the public affairs team of the Youth Climate Movement NL, an initiative that represents the voices of over a 100.000 youths in the Netherlands. I coördinate a few of our political points, such as ecofeminism. Apart from this, it is likely that I am either on my racebike (if the weather is nice enough), in a yogaclass or trying out a new cuisine. You can also find me in a bookstore or out enjoying the rich cultural life that Utrecht has to offer.
