I have a master in social educational sciences and more than 20 years of experience in the sector of development cooperation (voluntary work in literacy programmes in Mexico, research assistant at the university, responsible for gender mainstreaming in a NGO, consultancy). Since 2000 I work as consultant for ACE Europe, a Belgian consultancy firm for European and international cooperation, bridging theory and practice in development cooperation. My domains of action include the facilitation or coaching of strategic processes within organizations (NGOs, local authorities, ministries), provision of training, provision of policy advice and execution of evaluations. I have built expertise in the areas of local governance, capacity building, local development (access to basic services for health, water, food security and education), development education, M&E systems, lobby and advocacy. I have experience in managing complex result based evaluations involving different countries and partners and executed by a multi-disciplinary team of consultants. I have worked extensively with mixed method approaches in evaluation and accompanying multi-stakeholder processes. I’ve been involved in short-term assignments in Africa, Latin America and Asia and am fluent in Dutch, French, English and Spanish.
