I teach at University College Tilburg, where I use my expertise in the field of psychology in different courses. I am especially good at coming up with new, innovative ideas for education, and making them work in practice. I am a networker, and like to combine people from different fields in order to achieve an unexpected outcome. I am very creative and think outside of the box. 

I excel at finding people’s inner motivations and goals. My company (Live Love Lose) focuses on giving presentations about grief and resilience. I also coach people who have experienced a loss. I like to give back to society by doing volunteering work.


As a teacher I very much like to have personal contact with my students. I like to get to know their personalities, in order to understand better how I can present the materials to them. I try to, as much as I can, include personal coaching and attention into my courses.

I am a generalist, and in my courses I provide students with an overview of the important topics in a specific field. I invite students to become enthusiastic about a topic and dive into it themselves.



Live Love Lose: my company in which I help people who have lost someone. I give presentations, lectures and workshops around loss and resilience and I coach people who need help with their loss.

Doorleefboek: my book for children in primary school who are grieving.
