Founder, Confidential Advisor, Mediator

I have a background in tax law, having studied at the University of Groningen and worked as an international tax advisor at Ernst & Young and Deloitte, specializing in expatriate practice. However, I realized that the human aspect was often missing in the field of taxation, which led me to explore how I could combine my expertise with a more human-centric approach.


As a result, I made a career switch to mediation, specializing in divorces and inheritances after completing specialized training and courses in Inheritance Law and Family Law at the University of Amsterdam. Since 2006, I have been a registered and practicing (Family) Mediator with the Mediator Federation Netherlands (MfN). In my role as a mediator, I actively assist clients in finding mutually acceptable solutions, valuing a "win-win" approach and prioritizing individual wishes and interests. I bring a natural sense of commitment, a solution-oriented approach, empathetic skills, and an efficient work method to every case, and have successfully guided many divorces and estate distributions over the years.

In addition to my work as a mediator, I also serve as an external confidential advisor, certified by the National Association of Confidential Advisors (LVV). Drawing on my broad experience within large organizations and my mediation expertise, I assist organizations in creating a pleasant and safe work environment for their employees. I provide employees with a listening ear when needed and help them find solutions to issues such as inappropriate behavior or integrity concerns. My slogan in this role is "making the undiscussable discussable," and I believe that open communication and addressing behavior openly can benefit all parties involved and contribute to prevention.


Apart from my professional activities, I am also actively involved in voluntary board positions in associations and foundations, further demonstrating my commitment to making a positive impact in both my professional and personal endeavors.
