Born in the Netherlands my interest in other cultures and fascination for nature led me to live in Indonesia, Malaysia and Turkey. I have been so fortunate to experience so many more counties, connecting with people from all over the world.
I was raised hands-on in the hospitality industry anticipating customer needs is my second nature. However I pursued my education and career in the dynamic fashion business, where all worlds collide. I started in Sales selling children collections which taught me the art of collection build up, pricing and negotiation. Over the next 19 years I continued to deepen my interest in the business via product development for a global brand to bringing 12 collections to market as division manager for a High Street fashion retailer. Strategic planning, brand management, always looking for creative solutions and to think on my feet are just a view of the exciting aspects in this colourful fast moving business. Looking into the kitchen of ever faster moving fashion made me realise that it needed to be done differently, not only more sustainable but also fair. The break to rethink my career and find other ways of creating meaning coincided with our move to Turkey. Today I am connecting with my clients as a Pilates instructor in Singapore. My love for beautifully made products and fair business directed me to Market for Good.I am passionate about restoring balance and encouraging growth in all aspects of modern life. Currently living with my beautiful family in a cottage nested in green with the cosmopolitan city at reach. The best of both worlds, to appease my curiosity, my love for nature, connection and new experiences. I am known as an advocate for impactful deliberate daily choices in order to protect and restore worlds beautiful habitats and promote equal rights and opportunities. My motto: the key to a better FUTURE is YOU.Read less
