My work
I work since 2007 as a dietician in my own practice.

My current sports nutrition practice
I'm connected to the Olympic Network in my region; wich is an organisation supporting young sports talents, both financially and medical.

My own sporting background
I started practising athletics when i was 6 years old. Throwing discus was my absolute favourite for many years but i quit when i was 20 due to injuries. Started recently because i missed training and the competitions too much! I also love cycling, try to do so almost every day.

My favourite sporting moment or heroes
I have a lot of them, but the gold olympic medal of Pieter van den Hoogenband in the 100m freestyle in Athens; the Duthch volleyball players winning Olympic gold in 1996; and recently the olympic 1500m in Vancouver won by Mark Tuitert are my favourits.

My favourite foods
pasta, fruit, bread, fish, chocolate
