I find it a bit difficult writing about myself and how great I am (which for the record: I am), so I asked business partners & former colleagues how they see me and what has been said in all those conversations is that I am an energetic and enthusiastic lady with extensive managerial & controlling skills and I am keen on improvements. So there you have it. 😉
I have worked for 18 years in the field of Controlling of which 13 in corporate life and 5 in an educational institution and thus I have seen and experienced both worlds.
I am able to swiftly adapt to changing environments, but I am also especially skilled in getting the message across – in all levels of an organization, whether it be “a suit and tie” or not. Not only do I look at the numbers, but I also look at the context, the entire (end-to-end) process and very important: the people behind it. With a quip I can put people at ease or break open a deadlocked discussion.
I am also somewhat of a “forever student” and eager to learn. Finishing a post-HBO as Registered Financial Controlling® and a master’s degree in Business Process Management, whilst working fulltime and being a single parent, it shows the ambition and drive I have. Currently, I am doing a Philosophy program and as of November 2022 I will start with the program for prospective supervisors at UMIO. In my spare time (yes, I do have some) I love to read books, travel and dine out.
