Born and stayed on Texel, a real island resident. I am the proudest mother of daughter Sophie and son Storm. The children are no longer small and go their own way, I really enjoy watching them both go their own way. If the children are doing well, then I am doing well, it is as simple as that. Both children live on the island. Daughter Sophie has her own company as a wedding planner: Marriage on Texel and son Storm has graduated HBO Nursing. In addition, together with son Storm, I am the boss of Zus and Tante Jans, two vizslas, hungarian hunting dogs, who enjoy our daily walks. I am most happy with myself in the sea, together with my swimming buddies we swim in the sea 3/4 times a week between April 1 and the end of November. Next door I am standing on Vlieland with my daughter, we then swam Texel to Vlieland and back to Texel, we call that a back and forth.
