is a mother of 5, from Frisian descent, with ancestoral motherlines from Indigenous Nations in the coastal parts of Northern Europe that have been assimilated in Dutch society. She is a well versed community leader with great compassion for natural ecosystems, its guiding principles, and especially the women and grandmothers carrying, guiding and supporting their communities and hence the children and the future generations.
Her immense grasp of community building and teachings of the First Nations stems from the various teachings she has received from indigenous communities and spiritual leaders.
Through her study of matriarchal structures and elements of thriving communities her focus lies on working with grandmothers and empowering children.
Following the lead of the Creator and Elders, she has acquired a strong ability to connect people and to support people in finding the right entry and access where needed.
Besides having been trained by Chief Phil Lane jr. in dialogue and consultation community circles, she holds a Masters degree in international Management, has studied Sinology at Leiden University and Erasmus University of Rotterdam. Furthermore she has received an intensive education in Family Constellation, Community Building and Professional Communication. She is ideally positioned to lead the Four World Foundation (est. 2016 in The Netherlands), as a ‘satellite’ organization of Four Worlds International Institute, where she creates the exchange of traditional instructions and indigenous teachings from the Americas to Europe and vice versa, restoring, relearning our own pre-colonial indigenous connection.
