Office Manager - Business Translator
For as far as I can remember I have always been passionate about languages. Learning new foreign languages was, and still is, one of my hobbies. So I decided to turn my hobby into my profession and started learning languages.
Since I'm more into practice and not really interested in background knowledge, such as history, I chose to study at college instead of university.
In 2005 I graduated in Office Management - business translating and interpreting for Dutch (Flemish, my native language), English, French and German at Katholieke Hogeschool Limburg in Diepenbeek.
Furthermore I've learned Spanish and Italian through evening courses.
From 2005 until 2018 I was full time employed in an IT company as Presales Support. At the end of 2016 I started a secondary job as a freelancer in translation, office work and coaching. From 2018 this is my full time job.

My hobby is taekwondo. I train twice a week. Furthermore I like reading, so I read a lot.
I also like spending my time on the following interests:
- walking & cycling

I'm eager to learn and so I'm open to learn new things and get to know things still unknown to me now.
