Born in Amsterdam on July 11, 1962, and raised in Abcoude, where I still live with my husband and dog.
From a young age, I had the ambition to work as a nurse. I love to take care of people. That dream I have accomplished and I worked as a nurse for 15 years.

After years as a head nurse of an obstetrics department, I decided to switch to industry and became a branch manager at Savaz, part of Randstad Health Care (an agency for temporary jobs).

Then I started working at FarmaSel, a recruitment agency for the pharmaceutical industry, where my passion for recruitment was raised.

Here I found the “take care of people” factor again.

Because I wanted to develop my commercial talents, I switched to Beun-de Ronde, a company in my village selling laboratory equipment. My task was to introduce a diagnostic ELISA-kit to the market. In addition, I sold equipment which triggered my interest in the people in this industry. I like to work with people that have an in-depth knowledge combined with a no-nonsense approach. That made me decide to start a recruitment agency the field of Chemistry, Life Science, Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical industry. First for two years together with a partner (Compagnon, recruitment agency for Human Resource professionals) and from 1 January 2009 self-employed. Overtime, the People in Science services have become broader and we focus not only on recruitment, but on all career aspects of professionals in our industry.

“Quality, integrity and human rights are the most important conditions for an optimal business relationship, and that’s what I want to express with People in Science. In addition, I think it’s important that work should contribute to a happy life. That’s why I’m making a stand for long-term employment, in which people can fully develop.”
