Apart from this, I have also written a series of blogs for the website of Chapeau Magazine entitled ‘Guru on Sneakers‘. With this series I want to make the concept of spirituality more accessible to a broader public. In my blogs I show the reader that we are all spiritual beings, whether we want to be or not, simply because we’re human. You can read the ‘Guru on Sneaker’ blogs also on this website, on the ‘Inspiration’ page.



‘Limburg Vertelt’, in ‘Gezond in Limburg’, September 25th 2018:

WijLimburg, a platform for entrepreneurs:

philharmonie zuidnederland:

In April, June and August 2018 I have been doing three interviews for the new corporate sponsors brochure of philharmonie zuidnederland. I had Conversations with three very inspiring persons: Roy Senff, ceo of Scando Nederland BV, Atzo Nicolaï, president DSM Nederland and Aukje Kuypers, ceo of family company Kuijpers and Businesswoman of the year 2018! I love my job :-))).

The sponsorbrochure is due to be published in the fall of 2018. Photography by Hugo Thomassen, with whom I have worked before doing the ‘Portraits’ in Chapeau Magazine. This time, the sponsor will be phographed with his or her favorite musical instrument. Which musical Instruments they have chosen must remain a secret until publication. But I have already seen the photographs already and can truly say that they are beautiful!

I can’t wait to see the endresults in text and images!

Column in second largest national newspaper ‘Algemeen Dagblad’

From September 2012 until January 1st 2016 I have written a weekly column about my (former) job as a public prosecutor in ‘Algemeen Dagblad’. And so I became the first Dutch magistrate ever to write in such a personal way about the emotional side of this hectic but ever so rewarding job. On January 1st 2016, I stopped doing this because from that moment onwards, I had left my job as district attorney in order to follow my writersheart. 

Articles for Fabulous Mama Magazine

I have written several articles for Fabulous Mama Magazine about my work as a public prosecutor with regard to children as perpetrators and as victims of crimes. The articles are in Dutch and you can read them here.
