Youth, young adults, education and research run like a thread through her career. For more than twenty years, she worked as an executive secretary and later as coordinator of management and resources at various schools in primary vocational education, the predecessor of today’s VMBO. She then moved to IVA, the then Institute for Labor Market Issues, affiliated with Tilburg University and supported the sections Labor Market & Social Security and Education & Culture. A few years later she worked at K2, Brabants Kenniscentrum Jeugd for the Board of Directors and for the Supervisory Board and managed the support service. With the advent of the transition youth care, she transferred to Avans University of Applied Sciences in November 2014 where her position immersed her in supporting practice-based research.

Charlotte on a sustainable future:

I am content when I can contribute from my facilitating function to the impact of research on wellbeing economy and thereby increase the value for people, for their lives and environment.
