Certified Since:: May 2020
As a Director of Operations, and Certified Online Business Manager, I support successful and ambitious small business owners who change lives. Growing your business means making impact.
I have a medical background (MD) and experience as a corporate Operations Manager in a multimillion dollar/euro organisation in the field of human tissue donation, where I have lead IT projects, setting up Quality Manuals (SOPs), and LEAN/improvement of business process.
Over the past 3 years, I have worked with Business Coaches and Course Creators in the online space which enabled me to dive into a lot of different software tools.
This experience enables me to provide small business owners with strategic support, helicopter view as well as expertise in the area of quality control, Standard Operation Procedures, finances, and processes (Operational Excellence). I'm at my best when I can be the linking pin between the developers/contractors and the owner and the rest of the team.
I have a well-developed sense of responsibility and responsiveness, while I manage and grow your team, projects and streamline the business systems. I love working with small teams that honour each other's work, availability and boundaries. My clients are aware of the importance of personal energy management for both themselves and their team, to make sure everyone is rested and delivering their best work.
I'm based in The Netherlands, work internationally in Europe, UK, and the East coast of the US/Canada.
When I'm not working, you will find me in my vegetable garden!
