After studying Child Development at the University of Amsterdam, I worked in a Residential Youth Care Institution for 15 years. During that time I was raising several foster children as well as 4 children of my own, one of which was diagnosed with ADHD. All of this makes me confident I can contribute to the efforts of parents all around the world trying to raise their children in the best way possible, especially since I believe that raising children is essentially universal.
Currently, I have the pleasure of living under the same roof with 4 teenagers of my own, between the age of 14 and 18. Although I am a very family-oriented person and I enjoy spending time with them, I also love taking occasional long walks with my three dogs in order to keep my sanity.
I am fluent in 4 languages: Dutch, English, Serbian and Hungarian.
