My own journey to success

My story

As a child I, was very passionate about life. I was curious and creative. I went into nature a lot and studied plants, trees and animals my father told/taught me about. I was crazy about history; kings and castles, the Romans, dinosaurs, and archaeology. I was also reading about science; I just wanted to know how the world works.

Then when I went to high school, things changed. I began to feel insecure. I started looking up to people, thinking they knew best and second guessing myself. Gradually I lost my passion and confidence in myself. Unfortunately, I started walking the paths that others recommended for me in my career choices. I followed career advice from others. I accepted job ‘opportunities’ that came on my path and studied careers recommended by others.

Then at age 31, my marriage, career and health were all suffering. At that point, when I touched rock bottom, I started studying personal development books to get me out of this mess. I rediscovered myself, learned what my core values were and started aligning my life with them. The effects were amazing! Today I live a simple, happy and fulfilling life. I get up in the morning with a lot of energy and sense of purpose. I am not afraid of obstacles anymore. My health is great and I feel peaceful. I have built in new healthy habits; for instance, I have been meditating daily since 2015 without missing one day.

I am still working on some areas of my life and I am okay with that because I have overcome greater obstacles. I am an ongoing student of life and I am happy to share my confidence and enthusiasm with you.

I feel the need to give back to the world because everywhere I see people stuck in a rut in life, not being passionate about what they are doing. What I want for you is to feel happy, content and fulfilled in life. I want to partner with you to overcome the obstacles that are keeping you from living your life purpose. I partner with you to (re)discover why you were born.

Personal life

I was born and raised in the Netherlands. I studied Mechanical Engineering and Latin American Studies. My career includes positions in both fields and even combined. I worked at Latin American embassies, in insurance companies, in the renewable energy industry as a consultant and manager, amongst others.

I have lived in the Netherlands, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Morocco, and Curaçao. And I have travelled to 25 countries around the world. The last six years I have lived on the Caribbean island of Curaçao, but have moved back to the Netherlands with my son in 2018. I am grateful for all the countries I have lived in and have travelled to. The knowledge and inspiration I draw from all of these cultures and languages has opened a beautiful world to me which I use in every day coaching.
