Experience After many years managing projects for United Nations and non-profit organisations, I realised I enjoyed writing the documents that helped them launch, run smoothly and record their journeys. When teaching English, I put the learner first and crafted materials that best served their needs. When Philips introduced a new intranet system, I offered to orient users through how-to videos.

My passion is purpose. As a freelance writer and copy-editor, I don't just write or edit documents to make them clear and compliant. I think along with my clients and become a partner who gives attention and cares.

Experience November 2016:

Textabulous is the new name for Get Real Editing. I still love editing, whether legal or academic, but I also do a lot more besides: legal and other translations from French and Dutch; low-fat writing for marketing and for internal and external communications; and technical writing and editing.

Recent roles include Editor and Publisher on the content-transition team for the new intranet at Philips, and Editor and Write for the new Internet at Europol, the European Police Office.

I am now translating from Dutch a book by Nico Tollenaar, a partner at the law firm Resor, “Het pre-insolventieakkoord: een rechtvaardingsgrondslag en raamwerk”.

Qualifications BA European Studies
Experience World citizen with 13 years of experience in language-related education and services, initially as an English and German language teacher and intercultural communications trainer and then transitioning increasingly into the writing side of language expression, specifically translation, proof-editing and content writing. Since 2012, I have worked predominantly with academic language centres in the Netherlands and Germany, but I have also been building up my own network of direct clients in the corporate arena. The balance between the two worlds keeps my work interesting and varied. However, I see significant room to further challenge myself in education, networking and continued personal development.
