Growing up in a small town as one of eleven children I dreamed of travel and adventure. I put a map on my wall announcing that I would go abroad and by age 19 I was in Germany. When I took that bold step I was unaware that dotted between the bright sunny days it would sometimes rain hard. The same goes for motherhood. The unexpected and difficult situations have come and gone and come again. I have learned how to dance in the rain and splash in the puddles. "There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad gear.” Let me help you find the equipment you need to enjoy dancing in the rain.
Over the past 20 years I have lived, worked and begun my adventures of being a mother in five different countries. I have worked as a teacher/social worker in public/private schools, in a teen transition home, a hospital and an orphanage. I have gained extensive knowledge about different school and cultural systems. Speaking fluent German and French are two additional skills I picked up on my journey. Helping children and parents has given me a deep understanding of what is, what should be and what can be.
I have always been the contemplating kind of girl. Looking around, wondering, investigating, curious, thinking.
This quality drove me to travel, to dive into different cultures and be amazed, that things could be so different from what I was used to. I loved challenging myself in this manner and started to look at my surroundings like I was looking at a different culture.
Then I started to see things differently. I realized that you don’t need to go far to travel and learn.I also saw some things that appeared to be the norm, made me sad, angry and confused and I wanted to use that energy to come to action.
In 2009 I graduated as a drama teacher, and since then I’ve been using theatre and education to tell stories and educate subjects that are near to my heart. I worked in community theatre, high schools and wrote and acted in educational plays...Always using humor and openness.
At the moment I tour the Dutch public schools with an educational comedy-play about traffic safety, act in commercials, write stories and plays and…join forces with Allison.
