My name is ANKE . I was born and raised in Holland. I have a BA Degree in Education and an advanced Degree in Cultural Work from the Social Academy of Amsterdam.
I started my career as an Elementary School Teacher and then went on to complete my advanced degree in Cultural Work.
For more then two years I immersed myself in a self designed cultural research program where I obtained hands on experiences working at all levels of the social strata. My purpose was to get 'street-smarts' and better understanding of people.
Then, for more then 10 years, I was instructor and therapist at a school for physically and mentally challenged children in Holland.
Now living in the United States, I am an Inspirational Speaker and work as a Life Coach and Care Coach. I am the author of several Inspirational Books for adults and children and the founder of the Woolly Wizard™ Program, Self help kit for kids.
Focusing on what really matters.
Filling up our 'Cup of Joy each Day,' so we are ready to deal with all that living involves.
Teaching the children the basics of life.
Listen and observe.
If each of us could choose 1 person who we assist in finding their passion and purpose in life, we would not have time to complain and finger point.. The world could feel better despite the economic crisis and tragedies. We would feel stronger to deal with our issues .
