Maartje is a Change Maker, combining project / change management experience with decision quality, synthesizing and facilitation skills, a drive that moves mountains and brilliance at a Human level.
This mother of 3 worked 20 years in the male dominated upstream Oil & Gas industry internationally, opting recently for a career pivot to independent executive consultant, certified coach and a corporate diversity & inclusion offering.
Maartje left the Netherlands, where she grew up, for good, 20 years ago moving around the globe and working on every continent. In the US she lost her heart to New Orleans where her love for a social life on steroids, living life for today, glitter, costume & décor making, good food, music, art, and functional chaos all perfectly fell into place. She is learning to love Pittsburgh and actively plotting "where next" in this life. Maartje is a qualified Skipper and capable Scuba Diver, Skier, and Paddle boarder, happiest when she is sharing life with friends and/or can feel the sea breeze in her face.
