Mrs. Daniëlle Plantinga, MA

Office coordinator and Founder of Au Pair International

As the owner-director of Au Pair International I am responsible for the day-to-day co-ordination of the office. Before I started my own company I used to work for the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security in various international positions. I am married to Frans and together we have a son (Casper). In my family we were lucky to host seven au pairs from very different parts of the world (a.o. South Africa, Thailand, Ukraine) and with very diverse backgrounds. It has brought us unique intercultural friendships. In my free time I go to the gym (because I have to) and I take salsa classes (because I actually enjoy it). Further on I enjoy spending time with friends and family, I like travelling to far destinations and on weekends I encourage my husband and son at the golf course.
