Whilst it was my academic training that brought me to female reproductive health, it was my heart that drew me to Celebration Day for Girls (CDG).

I am a public health consultant who began research in women’s health in Melbourne and have since lived in Germany and Ukraine working in the broader health field. I have thoroughly enjoyed diving deep into topics such as female body image and access to health care, however, have craved the intimacy of working with women and girls, rather than analysing data from afar.

Facilitating CDG workshops with girls and mothers provides me with the personal, magical connection that close women circles bring. The CDG workshop allows me to share my enthusiasm for female reproductive health with you and your daughter in the robust, nurturing, and informative framework of the CDG programme.

I come from a close-knit family of three daughters who have shared life’s high and lows, exciting journeys and daunting pathways. I am therefore very passionate about holding space for mothers and daughters to explore their feelings, questions, and hopes for a blooming menarche and ongoing connection amongst those that bleed.

We can all learn from each other, and I look forward to being with you and your daughter(s) in circle and sharing, exploring, and celebrating the wonders of our bodies.

I am a Holistic Health Educator specialising in women’ s health, also practices as a Yoga & Meditation Teacher and Abdominal Massage Body Worker. Through my interdisciplinary background, rooted in the arts, education and interactive community projects, I am passionate in finding creative and accessible ways that inspire a positive body image, emotional resilience and a growing self-esteem cross culturally.

Learning about my own cycle and the cycles in nature has shown me so much about myself, gave me strength and acceptance of who I am and made me the person that I am now. I believe an open and shameless communication can only benefit our relationships with kids, partners and ultimately everyone else.

I co-founded Big Sis CIC in 2020, a UK based wellbeing platform developing girl empowerment initiatives supporting girls 8-12 and their immediate support networks. I also advocate for menstrual empowerment projects worldwide.

I’ve always loved to work with tweens and teens, first as a qualified secondary school teacher in my home country Holland, where I taught Economics at a high school for 7 years. Now as a life coach in private practice for this age group in Germany (Bonn).

My own experience with menarche was not a great one, I grew up in a warm and loving family but my parents were not really open about discussing these topics with my sister and I. Therefore it felt as though we had to figure out how to deal with it ourselves. For my own two daughters I would like for them to feel that it is okay to feel insecure in the beginning and that we will support them.

When I heard from an Australian friend of mine that she had done a Celebration Day for Girls in Melbourne I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of the program that I immediately checked if anyone was running this in Germany. I really wanted to participate with my oldest daughter. There was no opportunity here (yet), but having looked around on the website I got so excited that I trained with Jane Bennett to became a facilitator in my own right.

I am delighted to now be offering Celebration Day for Girls in both English and in Dutch.

I feel blessed to have the opportunity to educate and support young girls in preparation for their menarche and to help them feel more connected with other women of all ages. I look forward to meeting you and your daughter.
