Unique Anke

Finding inspiration, energy, and peace is why Anke jogs, bikes, meditates, cooks, visits cultural places, and trains her tastebuds with wine tastings.
She listens to podcasts about her favorite topic history and reads Dutch literature and books about retail and management. On her nightstand lies, 'I am an island' by Tamsin Calidas and Tessa Randau's 'Het bos, vier vragen, het leven en ik.'

Having come at life's midway, Anke digs deep into her 'whys' with the help of a life coach. This process helps her guide others in finding a way to be the best they can be. She is genuinely interested in people, highly empathic, and a good listener. Human interaction energizes her, and bouncing insights with people renders personal growth.

To the young Anke, she'd say: "Believe in yourself and your qualities, and be aware of your work points."

Anke's Northern Star 'Love what you do, put your heart into it, and you will be rewarded' is testimony to a woman being true to herself.
