“There are always flowers for those who want to see them. Henri Matisse ”

The herbarium holds an estimate of 4 to 5 milion objects and I'm very proud to be a Collections Manager of this very vast and important heritage of The Netherlands. Besides working with all these collections, I also enjoy working with my team and hosting the many visitors coming over to Leiden from all parts of the world, a very inspiring part of my job.


I started working at the herbarium in 2011. I started off with a digitization project for a PostDoc of the Leiden University. In 2012, after my graduation, I started working as a collections manager at the herbarium.
