Currently, I am working at AKQA. I have recently completed a Master’s in Advertising at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. On a more personal level, I am a very driven individual who enjoys being challenged. I am constantly encouraging others and myself to achieve success through addressing problems head on in a positive light. Leadership is my natural strength, but I also work very well in teams, as I am a perceptive listener who accepts advice and utilizes open communication with both my peers and superiors. I am originally from the Netherlands, but have resided in the US for five years, and am eligible to work in America due to my permanent resident status. I attended high school in the Netherlands, before attending Southern Methodist University in Texas. During my undergraduate studies I was a Division I athlete in rowing.
