Janneke studied biomedical sciences and obtained a master's degree in Medical and Pharmaceutical Drug Innovation (MPDI) at the University of Groningen. After finishing her master she worked at a pharmaceutical company and a company that produces microbiological reference material for the food and water industry. Although she found the lab work very interesting, she lacked the sustainability aspect in her work and therefore chose to switch careers. At our company she can further specialize as specialist on subjects that lie close to her heart as a farmer's daughter: soil health and climate. Janneke likes to really focus on a topic. It is her ambition to contribute to a more sustainable world by restoring and maintaining soil health with the help of science. Within our team Janneke is known as a very eager, hard worker. She is always cheerful, loves to tackle totally new things and has developed into an indispensable member of our team in no time.
In her leisure time Janneke loves spending time in nature. She likes traveling, working in her vegetable garden, running and skating.
