Since 2013 I am a member of the Supervisory Board of the HSV. I am the director at the Rijksdienst Cultureel Erfgoed. Previous workplaces include among others Tax Administration (director), the University of Utrecht and Fortis Bank. Within the Supervisory Board, I bring expertise in the areas of human resources and communication. To be a member of a Board of Trustees requires both involvement and distance; an exciting combination. Some of the factors that attracted me to the HSV were its ambition for diversity in its structure and school population; international and Dutch, mainstream and special education. I like the fact that there are children, parents and staff with very different backgrounds. I live in Zeist and am the mother of two adolescent daughters and a son.

Since 2013 I have been a member of the Supervisory Board of the HSV. I’m a lawyer by profession and therefore I bring my legal expertise to the Supervisory Board. Previously I was the chairman of another school board. As a result, I am familiar with the experience of administrative aspects of primary education. I was also at that time a board member of the association of neutral special schools in The Hague (NBS). Through this work, I came in contact with the HSV. The long tradition of HSV, its variety of different schools and the commitment of the employees were important factors that attracted me to join the board. I have two primary school aged children who are both in primary education in The Hague (outside the HSV).

I have been a member of the HSV Supervisory Board since 2017. My background lies in business. For the last 30 years I have been running a company that helps people and businesses identify and utilize growth and development opportunities. I am also personally interested in the development of education. I have been a member of the VCL MR for 5 years. The HSV is very enthusiastic about the diversity of backgrounds and education. I have three daughters who went to high school in The Hague who and now study in Delft.

And that's WHY
Why I work in and for education throughout my career and want to continue to do this. Why I am currently chairman of the Executive Board of the Gooise Schools Federation. Why I am on the Board of Trustees of the Catholic Pabo in Zwolle (KPZ), the National Education Museum, Kennisland and the LeerKracht foundation.
But also why I am a director of the National Sunflower: young people can make the world more inclusive.
That is why I experience the supervision of De Haagsche Schoolvereeniging as an honor: schools with a special tradition and a powerful contemporary profile. The mission of the HSV "global citizenship, lifelong learning!" fits in beautifully with the assignment that Malala has outlined and that drives me.
That is why I think becoming a member of the supervisory board of the HSV is an honor.
I have been a member of the Supervisory Board since this year (2019). Via an old colleague I was approached as to whether I was interested in a position within the Supervisory Board on the recommendation of the GMR. I really enjoy being involved in a supervisory role with a special school organization like the HSV. The special and international character and diversity of students, staff and education appeal to me, as well as the strong quality awareness of the organization.
In my opinion, the importance of education cannot be sufficiently emphasized. Attention to the personal development of the child or the young person is paramount to me, so that they develop into people who are open and respectful in society and who are constantly aware of their own role and contribution. I therefore recognize myself very much in the mission of the HSV.
I have been working in higher education for many years, of which the last 15 years in The Hague (respectively Hotel School The Hague and The Hague University of Applied Sciences) and as a result, although I live in Haarlem, I have developed a strong bond with the city of The Hague .
Because of my work experience I not only have a lot of knowledge and experience with (higher) education, but also with many other aspects that are relevant for supervision, such as finance and marketing. I am also a member of the Supervisory Board of a secondary school in Haarlem and hope to be able to use that experience for the HSV.
As mentioned, I live in Haarlem and have two (young adult) children.
