I completed the physiotherapy course In 1985. After working abroad for a year, I joined the Group practice Minerva. Over the years I have specialized in pelvic related complaints and I am now a registered pelvic physiotherapist. To ensure a successful result of the treatment of patients, I regularly consult with the referrers.
As a pelvic physiotherapist, I give refresher courses to doctors, psychologists and others who provide health care. I am also a member of the Amsterdam team of pelvic physiotherapists.
Furthermore, I followed the training in haptonomy and I give preventive exercise therapy to groups within our practice.

In 2002 I graduated as a physiotherapist in Amsterdam. After gaining practical experience in a hospital and nursing home I joined this practice working as a general physiotherapist. I have gained further skills and abilities by following courses such as fall prevention training (Otago training), Perfect Pilates (core stability training), motivational interviewing and medical taping. In addition, in 2013, I completed the one-year training to become a home care physiotherapist. I do a large part of the external home treatments and work a lot with district nurses, home carers, occupational therapists and other disciplines working in community care.

I completed my physiotherapy training in 1979. Since then I have been working as a general physiotherapist.
Later I specialized in the treatment of psychosomatic disorders and in the treatment of pelvic floor complaints (unintended urinary or faecal loss, difficulty in urinating or bowel movements, complaints related to prolapse- and sexual problems associated with functional disorders of the pelvic floor) and disorders of the pelvic belt due to pregnancy. I am officially registered for both of these specialisations. For the successful treatment of patients, I also regularly consult with various referrers. I am also a member of the pelvic physiotherapists team in Amsterdam.

In 2010 I graduated as a general physiotherapist at the Arnhem and Nijmegen University of Applied Sciences. After my graduation, I gained work experience in various departments of the hospital and at the care group Maas en Waal. But there is always more to learn. That is why I started the master pelvic physiotherapy at the SOMT in Amersfoort. Here I graduated in June 2017. Since November 2017 I work at Group Practice Minerva and I support this team with my specialism. As a pelvic physiotherapist, I treat complaints in the entire area of the abdomen, pelvis and lower back. I think it’s important to work together with my patients looking to find a solution to the problem. So I look closely at the person who comes into my treatment room and stay in contact with any referrers and specialists.
