A bit about Marlies:

In 2002 I moved from the Netherlands to the United States. I experienced how challenging it is to get used to a different culture.

After having been a Registered Nurse for 20+ years, both in the Netherlands and the United States, I decided in 2011 to make a career change and I became a therapist.
