Before joining team Yoast, I worked as a social worker for some years. I know next to nothing about computers and, to be honest, I would like to keep it that way!
I started out as a facility employee at Yoast. But I like to poke my nose into stuff, and that way I got involved in more and more tasks and grew into a new function. I was the facility manager for a while. Beside managing the Yoast offices, I loved going to WordCamp. Especially to volunteer.
Yoast grew, and we got 2 more offices. That became to much to manage in the hours that I work. That’s when they asked me if I would like to become a community representative. It didn’t take me long to answer: YES!
So now I visit even more WordCamps and get to meet so many new amazing people in the wonderful WordPress Community. If you ever see me wandering around at a WordCamp, come up to meet me. I simply love meeting new people, but please don’t ask me difficult questions about our products. ;)
I live with my husband Jeroen, and our three children (Eva, Bas and Anne) in Wijchen. In my spare time I like to sew children’s bags, and make all kinds of things with paper and fabric. I love to read and watch Netflix series and of course, spend time with my family.
