People & Culture Coordinator | Events

Originally from Belgium, I have lived in the vibrant and amazing city of Berlin, on the Dutch seaside, The Hague and in the one and only Amsterdam. Almost a year ago, I decided to move to Sydney permanently.  I haven't regretted it ever since. The climate, nature and the wonderful sea gives me so much joy and energy, and I  don't plan on leaving anytime soon.

My hospitality career started many years ago in a local café, where I learned the old fashion way, as a 15-year-old. Working at McDonald's for four years during high school where I was conditioned to a very fast paced operational environment. During my studies in hospitality management, I was fortunate enough to complete an internship in one of Germany’s most famous hotels, The Adlon. Here, I experienced many aspects of the intriguing world of high-end hospitality. 

I then spent some as a Restaurant Supervisor at The Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky before a position in the HR department was offered. I jumped at the chance to join the team and with my operations knowledge plus the range and diversity of people I had managed over the years, It was an exciting time of growth and learning for me. 

At BENCHMARQUE, I am entrusted to manage our events division. Responsible for the recruitment and ongoing management of all contractors. This is a brilliant opportunity for me to translate all my previous experience in a most personable and engaging way to deliver service above and beyond the minimum and to help and support our employees with all their day to day enquiries. 

I am passionate about helping you achieve your career goals in hospitality.  Please feel free to contact me to make an appointment for a phone catch up if you think I can support you in any way.

I can help candidates find jobs in:
