Born and bred in the woods of a small Dutch town, I was hungry to travel the world. My main goal was to make myself feel local in all global metropolitans. My career in the fashion industry as a Model handed me that opportunity.
After working for brands including Vogue, Louis Vuitton and Diesel,
I decided my next destination should be my own body.
I immersed in Ayurveda, a holistic mind-body system with roots in the Vedic Tradition, and have been in awe of the body's capabilities to heal itself when she works with Mother Earth since.
When I am not working on creative productions, you can find me in my Herbal Workshop, or my virtual practice It's Mother Earth where I specialise in natural solutions for Women's Health.
I joined the group Model Activists in 2018, where over 350 models join forces to target a variety of topics that are well overdue for change. In the past four years my focus has been on a sustainable mind-body relationship for Models, and as I became pregnant, continued to talk about Body Image for new mothers.

I made it my heart's project to advocate for a healthy, down-to-earth, mind-body relationship within the modelling industry by working with agents and their upcoming talent since 2017.
In my mentorship- and workshop sessions I shared the holistic mind-body practices of Ayurveda, a sister science to Yoga, that specializes in personalised self-care using herbs, nutrition, optimised routines and bodywork.
With the birth of Nova unravelled my second passion: sharing Ayurveda with those who want to conceive, are pregnant, birthing or in the postpartum phase of their lives.
