Nancy was born and raised in Amsterdam, where she was a first generation student in her family. While studying at the University of Amsterdam she discovered the power of social entrepreneurship with Enactus as she co-lead a catering startup empowering refugee women. This is when she realized the power of being part of and learning from a variety of social bubbles and how this had been the foundation for her hands-on mentality.
After her Masters in Corporate Communication she therefore set the first steps of her career within the national Enactus Netherlands team. Her authenticity and eagerness for change rapidly pushed her forward towards the executive leadership position. In 2019 she voluntarily co-founded the non-profit Mom Buddy Movement, connecting mums across all corners of society.
