I am originally from The Netherlands, but after meeting my fiancé working on cruise ships I moved to his home on the west coast of Scotland, to the Isle of Lewis. A lovely island but far away from my family. That is why I decided to combine my creative skills with the love of helping people and becoming a Squarespace web designer. This allows me to get to see the people who are dear to me so much more often.
A lot of people dream of what they could do! So were my mum and step dad. For years they were talking about moving abroad to Spain, Austria or Italy and start a bed and breakfast. Like so many people they talk about their dreams but unfortunately never have the courage to follow them. I thought my mum and step dad were heading that road…until Christmas morning 2016 when I got a phone call from my mum telling me they bought a house in Austria with 4 self-catering apartments. Say what?!!
With no experience in hospitality, marketing, accounting let alone Microsoft word, they packed up their things, sold the house in the Netherlands and moved. Me and my sister combined strengths and started helping where we could. I was helping with the website which was a WordPress website. Well I tell you, I have gained many many many grey hairs over WordPress. The constant updating of plugins, error messages and you have no clue how to fix them, no direct support….I got so fed up until I came across Squarespace. Hallelujah! Compared to WordPress they are a breath of fresh air!
As I was helping my mum, I realized that so many people do this work while having the flexibility to travel. So why couldn’t I? So I decided to let go of my fears and follow MY dream and become a digital nomad as an amazing Squarespace web designer.
Chocolate and flowers make me happy. Love to put Ikea flat pack together and really don’t enjoy shopping (give me online shopping any day) and I really enjoy helping people.
