Towards evidence-based practice
Curriculum Vitae

A physiotherapist-researcher in the field of Parkinson’s disease, I have over 10 years expertise in translating evidence into practice recommendations and implementing these in clinical practice. I have a proven track record of bringing people together, motivating them to set a collaborative goal and reach it. Both national and international. Being an enthusiastic person, interested in people and cultures, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, and travelling the world. I have excellent written and verbal communication skills, in Dutch and English. Currently I am working as  Project Lead Guidelines Development & Implementation and International Collaboration at ParkinsonNet, Radboud university medical centre.

I live in Amsterdam, together with Paul Koper and our daughters Maud (2004), Kaat (2006) and Saar (2008).
