The past 7 years I have worked in this organisation as a project manager of the WaLTER project. Besides running the central office, I was responsible for the external communication and the maintenance of the project website. Before this assignment I have had various jobs. When I almost finished my study Communication and Desktop Publishing, I worked at the union for the graphics sector in Amsterdam. Although I missed the graphic challenges, it was an interesting function which made me stay working there for a number of years. It felt really good to help people by providing information and preparing their defences. During these years I was also involved in all kinds of communication issues such as company logo design and house style development.
In 1995 I moved to the Island Texel and became a local reporter specialized in the life stories of new Texelaars. At NIOZ I was very lucky to use my creative working experience again. The tasks I’m most interested in are developing, designing and maintaining websites. These challenges bring me a lot of joy and energy. Since May 2017, I have been appointed as a research assistant for the department of Coastal Systems. This also includes the continuation of my work on the websites Walterwaddenmonitor, AcroporaNet, Flatfishsympoisa and Wadden Systems Research Centre.

Uit het jury rapport van de Vredeman de Vries Prijs voor Vormgeving: 'Het is voor de toekomst van de Wadden belangrijk dat we nu over een website beschikken die op een toegankelijke manier zoveel thema’s aansnijdt en die zo’n goed overzicht biedt van wat er allemaal speelt. Inhoudelijk sterk, elegant en functioneel.'
