Born and raised in the Netherlands, I graduated as a medical doctor in 2014 at Maastricht University. Afterwards, I proceeded to qualify as a GP and completed a PhD research degree in ear, nose and throat medicine and neuroscience. During these years I was fortunate to have worked in several different countries, such as UK, Canada, Nepal and Ghana.
My job as a GP provides a unique position to care for patients of all age groups, help and guide them with their specific needs, and build a trusting relationship over time. I find this variety of medical practice very stimulating and rewarding.
In October 2021 my partner Jan and I moved to this beautiful part of the world. We feel inspired by the Kiwi lifestyle and especially love to explore the outdoors, whether it be climbing, mountain biking or tramping. I consider myself very fortunate to be part of the team at Greenwood health and am looking forward to meeting you.
