My upbringing in the Frisian country side has given me a close connection to and passion for the agricultural sector and for nature. The desire to contribute to a sustainable and fair world is deeply rooted in my personality. As an advisor sustainable supply chains I found a way to transform that desire into concrete action. I am a person who ‘gets things done’ and loves the dynamics, speed and challenges of our work. No project is too complex and no challenge too big.
After studying environmental economics, I worked for the ministry of Agriculture in the Sustainable Food Systems Program. Those food systems have remained the focus in my advisory work as well, both at Schuttelaar & Partners and FairMatch Support. At Schuttelaar & Partners, I support agriculture and food companies in developing and implementing an impactful sustainability or sourcing strategy. In addition, I use my profound supply chain knowledge to create practical solutions for companies and coalitions of companies. My core competencies: results oriented, structured and writing skills come in handy.
