Lisa was grew up in the Dutch town of Zoetermeer. She was always something of an idealist, and wanted to help create a more social society in which people could develop themselves and where co-operation and partnership were core values.
Sensing that Amsterdam was a place where these kinds of notions could be further developed, she moved to the Dutch capital in 2006.
Working on the Ejai helpdesk made her realize what a wonderful gift it was to give people the time and space to reflect on who they are and what they are capable of. She became hooked on the amaseu approach to developing people. The rest, as they say, is history.
