‘When I was (very) little, I already knew I wanted to be a veterinarian. Not really a surprise, because I was always surrounded by cats, rabbits and ponies. After waiting a long time, I could finally start the study in September 2000. I’ve worked at several clinics in the Netherlands since I’ve graduated and gained as much experience as I could. From October 2010 on I’ve been working here at the clinic, ‘Dierenkliniek Vondelpark’. I love it very much and work 3 days a week.

My interests are mostly internal diseases and cats medicine. To keep myself up-to-date of all the new developments, I take a lot of courses and go to (international) congresses which all have cats medicine as subject. It is advantagious to have all the knowledge to help every cat in Amsterdam and surroundings..

In my spare time I like to go out with friends, have a nice dinner, dance salsa, tennis and taking photographs. Since December 2010 I have a lovely hairy roommate, named Daantje. Daantje loves to lie in the sun, sleep and dream about mice… I’m looking forward to meeting you and your pet at the clinic! See you soon!’
