Orthomolecular Epigenetic Therapist
My journey into the field of nutrition and health started in 2009 when I was researching how to maintain my current weight without being hungry. I had been overweight for all of my youth and had lost weight. In my research I came across information with regards to hormones and how they influence our appetite, satiety and metabolism.
Since then I have followed both Dutch and North-American courses in the field of orthomolecular therapy, hormonal inbalances and nutritional coaching.
Even though I have a Master of Science degree in International Business Administration (Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam and Rotterdam School of Management) and had been working for an IT company, I decided to follow my heart and make the transition to make it my job to naturally help people improve their health. 3 years later I made the decision to start my own practice.
I continue to follow courses in this field to learn more and keep my knowledge upt to date, which I love to do!
Back to "about me". :-) After giving birth to 2 children, I too faced the challenges of a young mother having to combine being a mother, working far from home, being a wife and managing a househould and social life. And lets not forget about getting back in shape after 2 pregnancies!
These experiences have taught me more about stress and its influence on the body, cravings and appetite! But also about loving myself and being comfortable in my changed body. I see it all as a learning experience and use this experience to help my cliënts.
