After completing an HR bachelor at Christian University of Applied Sciences Ede I followed various management and HR application studies.

As a non-executive board member in youth welfare and in primary education, since 2004 I have been working on the professionalization of the quality of balancing powers with the executive board in an increasingly complex educational workspace. Mergers, inter-organizational cooperation and large-scale housing have been important themes in this.
