Woman. Born 1962.

Originally trained for lab work, I worked at the
- agricultural university in Wageningen (plant disease and pesticides)
- Ministry of Environment (radiation inspector)
- Ministry of Defence (Head of the Radiological Protection Service)
- Fire Dept. of Amsterdam Amstelland (Hazmat Officer)

My work also is my hobby. In my spare time I
- work as a volunteer fire fighter in Soest
- am correspondent BeNeLux for Hazards intelligence (HInt,
- and always scan the web for dangerous goods accidents to learn from.

Beside that, I love to snorkle, canoe and be a reenactor (spinning and weaving in prehistory, viking age and late middle age)

Last but not least I am a cat lover. Right now (july 2008) I have 8 cat kids - I always carry some (sometimes even many) of their hairs around, to the disgust of some colleagues.

Jetty, Welcome to the greatest training site in the world! I see that you are a HAZMAT Officer, feel free to join the group called HazMat Training & News. I would love to hear some of your thoughts on our discussions. I also have a few forums going and would like to know what you think. The forums are called WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS < You should love that one when you read it. The other is ERG training. Being a HazMat officer I would love to hear how often you get your folks to train on the ERG. Keep in touch Todd McKee
