Iris graduated in 2010 as a pedagogue from the Hogeschool Utrecht. Because she needed more in-depth knowledge and a theoretical background, she subsequently started the master’s in remedial education. In 2012 she graduated as a remedial educationalist from Utrecht University.
After graduating, she worked in a practice specialized in learning and behavior. Here she has gained a lot of experience with children, young people and adults with dyslexia and dyscalculia. In addition, she helped set up a department of child and adolescent psychology, in which she treated many children and young people with AD (H) D, anxiety complaints, a negative self-image and emotion regulation problems. In 2019 she completed the training as a health care psychologist and she completed the basic EMDR course.
