      Mini Bio

      My love for mountains was ignited in my youth, however living in the Netherlands meant access to high places was pretty limited. For my degree study Biology I spent some time in Switzerland and Africa, and I enjoyed the immersion in other cultures, learning some languages on the way. ‘Munro-bagging’ trips introduced me to the wild places of Scotland and I fell head over heels in love with this amazing country: its spirited people, rich culture and its great wild places. I am the second female Dutch Munroist (SMC 4748) having climbed all the Munros. My professional background covers a wide range of sales in banking and the airline industry. Being part of the Wilderness Team means that I can combine this expertise with sharing my love for Scotland and its great outdoors.

      Place to play

      My favourite place in Scotland is on top of a mountain, and Knoydart is pretty special to me. This peninsula on the west coast of Scotland is sometimes called “Britain’s last wilderness”, and it feels good to step off the end of the road and walk into this wild place. Standing on top of a mountain where heaven meets earth does wonders for recharging the spirit. What a great way to connect with nature – and oneself!

      Not a lot of people know this

      I like to start my day doing yoga outside. My neighbours are getting used to seeing this crazy Dutch lady bend herself into all kinds of postures in my garden. Some are (almost) tempted to join in. Ask me about Frisbee…
