Designer, mother of 3 boys and education changemaker with over 18 years experience in the field of design and education. In 2007 I founded Turtlewings, a non-profit center in Brussels Belgium, welcoming educators, children and families to explore design thinking in relation to educational concepts. The idea was based on my masters thesis that I completed in 2000 at Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland. My passion lies in working with educational institutions, government initiatives, museums and corporations in the field of creating experiences and environments that inspire creative thinking. I am an expert at executing innovative programming centered on child and or adult learning, the design of learning environments, and inspiring individuals to reach their full potential. I love presenting and training, and have played with a variety of groups from teams of teachers, museum practitioners, business people, artists, parents to children from 2.5 to 18.
A Edtech start up. We won the Open Education Challenge in June 2014 and created Think with Things to bring my dream of an app that would bring creative reuse and found objects into education.
