I am since 2011 a member of the Supervisory Board, and since August 1st 2015 also chair.
I was trained as a tax consultant, I have worked for more than a decade as an advisor to the Tax Management at the Ministry of Finance. Teaching is something that I wear close to my heart. A good education provides optimal opportunities for people to develop and use their talents. Quality of education is very important and that begins in primary school. I am the father of a school-age daughter and former parent of the Willemspark School.
Since 2013 I am a member of the Supervisory Board of the HSV. I am child and adolescent psychotherapist by profession. In addition, I work two days a week at the University of Leiden as a clinical instructor for the Department of Clinical Psychology for master’s students. I bring knowledge in the field of education to the board. Previously I was a member of the board of Lighthouse Foundation Special Education. This work brought me in contact with the HSV. The diversity of the different schools within one foundation appealed to me tremendously. The enthusiasm of the HSV employees motivates me as a board member. I have two children who are both attending a secondary school in The Hague.
Since 2013 I am a member of the Supervisory Board of the HSV. I work as an interim director at the Rijksdienst Cultureel Erfgoed. Previous workplaces include among others Tax Administration (director), the University of Utrecht and Fortis Bank. Within the Supervisory Board, I bring expertise in the areas of human resources and communication. To be a member of a Board of Trustees requires both involvement and distance; an exciting combination. Some of the factors that attracted me to the HSV were its ambition for diversity in its structure and school population; international and Dutch, mainstream and special education. I like the fact that there are children, parents and staff with very different backgrounds. I live in Zeist and am the mother of two adolescent daughters and a son.

Since 2013 I have been a member of the Supervisory Board of the HSV. I’m a lawyer by profession and therefore I bring my legal expertise to the Supervisory Board. Previously I was the chairman of another school board. As a result, I am familiar with the experience of administrative aspects of primary education. I was also at that time a board member of the association of neutral special schools in The Hague (NBS). Through this work, I came in contact with the HSV. The long tradition of HSV, its variety of different schools and the commitment of the employees were important factors that attracted me to join the board. I have two primary school aged children who are both in primary education in The Hague (outside the HSV).

I have recently joined (since 1 August 2017) the Supervisory Board of the HSV. I have been retired for several years now. In the past, I had a lot of education: I was a teacher of education at a PABO and after that, a teacher of primary education. As an inspector I visited many schools in The Hague and the surrounding area, and so I also learned the HSV. I find it challenging to contribute from a different position to the further development of the education quality of the HSV. The fascination of the HSV I find the diversity that is in many ways. A feature that appeals to me is entrepreneurship: new initiatives are being taken and new tasks are being addressed. In doing so, results-oriented work and the children with certain problems are not forgotten, especially for them, special methods have been developed. The international character of education fits well in a city like The Hague and is also one of the HSV’s charms. I live in Poeldijk, The Hague, I am married, have four children and five grandchildren.
