I joined Innate Motion in 2013 to fully focus on what I love most: Solving business- and brand issues, creating positive societal impact, whilst developing winning teams courageous enough to go beyond the obvious. This is why I always look back on a project with a sense of joy and satisfaction when I see how our methodologies and change-journeys spark positive transformation, rarely leaving a client-team untouched. 

Before Innate Motion, I worked for over 18 years in Unilever in Europe, Africa, and Latam in multiple leadership roles and – categories. I am a Dutch national yet I currently live in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and feel privileged to have the world as my backyard, working truly global as we do as Innate Motion.

After graduating from business school and exploring roles in secretarial, personal assistance, office administration, and real estate sales, I found my place in the Life Support team of Innate Motion in 2014, and my calling in coordinating projects across the globe. The demands of my work keep me on my toes. From simplifying information into concise steps to connecting the dots, problem-solving, and making processes work more efficiently, I enjoy the varied challenges of this game of work.

Challenger, progressive caregiver, psychologist, and fearless cold-water swimmer. I am an advocate of driving change through everyday behavior. Relentlessly, I bring people and teams in close contact with the people they serve. I am lowering the barriers to go out there with empathy training. I believe in fierce empathy to change organizations.  

I’m responsible for the unique profile of Innate Motion with its officeless structure, diverse team, bottom-up accountability, and borderless care. This culture and organization exist thanks to the team and my stubborn optimism.

A pedagogue, linguist, and potential Bake-Off standout (if they’d only notice!). My journey from a multicultural upbringing has been a fascinating exploration of languages and diverse cultures. This passion has been my guiding force leading me to travel and obtain my degrees in languages, linguistics, and translation. Now based in vibrant London, we are raising our son in a home where three languages and cultures happily coexist.

Fitting the Caregiver archetype, I draw energy from supporting others and find my greatest fulfillment in facilitating personal growth and ‘aha’ moments. At Innate Motion, I channel my flair for words and analytical mindset into research and strategy. My keen empathy and natural penchant for humor allow me to connect with people on a deeper level. Joining the team in 2019, I was captivated by the shared purpose of fostering meaningful growth, a belief I’ve carried into every project I’ve led since.

Rulebreaker, imaginator, natural-born leader, writer, a multilingual and passionate dancer who loves fun, food, and travel. I believe in business as a force for good and drive the B Corp community in Indonesia. I passionately work with companies and brands to create a positive impact. I’m known as a person who challenges the comfort zones, walks the road less traveled, and instigates people to think out of the box.

I bring eclectic competencies as an engineer, brand strategist, researcher, parent, lecturer, speaker, and world citizen to the work I do, next to the 20+ years of experience. I share the power of hard work, positive thinking, and gratefulness in my social interactions. Today I live in Bali with Daniel, my partner, and Casey, my daughter. With Renoir & Rambo, our dogs, we enjoy the luxury of watching the sunset, walking on the beach, and being close to nature. I help organizations and people who rescue stray animals.

Caring for people and boosting profits don’t have to be polar opposite endeavors. The traditional logic of business is that we can either prioritize people or prioritize performance.
