I worked as a financial controller for Elsevier Science Publishers and Flower Auction Aalsmeer before joining KPMG Consulting's Change Management group as a senior consultant. After living abroad for several years, I have been independently employed since 2006 as a member of a network of former KPMG and Phoenix colleagues and a freelance coach for the GITP as well as running my own practice. Since 2015 I am connected to the European Leadership Platform as a moderator.

Working with Sandra is focusing on people, on development, on results and on process, which consequently makes working with Sandra a joy for me as well as educational and challenging every time. Sandra is honest, open, inquisitive and consistently dedicated to quality and connection. Consequently, she knows how to achieve the maximum result with her team and her clients as coach or supervisor.
