She is an environmental engineer, graduating from the Hogeschool Zeeland University in the Netherlands. She specialises in water treatment and worked in that sector for 5 years, although her career has mostly been devoted to waste treatment.
She has been working with textile waste at Koopera since 2013.
She started working in the area of projects and grants. From this team, she was able to propose and lead Koopera’s first innovation projects on recycling post-consumer textile fibres. This has subsequently become a production line and moved to the industrial area.
She is currently coordinating Koopera’s Common Services and continues to lead some of the most strategic projects for the future of the cooperative.
