About me

My name is Elsje Moulijn. I founded edissimo in 1994, the year in which my daughter was born. In the first two decades of its existence, edissimo focused on copywriting, editing and translating.

As the language tools on the internet improved, I increasingly felt an emptiness, the fire slowly extinguished. I decided to get myself moving by starting a new study: international relations and political sciences. In 2015, I graduated at the University of Leicester with a Master in ‘Politics and the EU’.

I have done voluntary work as a blogger and as a political commentator, I was active in a political party and in this period, I’ve learnt a lot. But my professional life needed a new impulse as well. So I followed a teacher course and a coaching course. The result: I now teach Dutch, but my main work consists of coaching people to live their lives to the full.

In my work for edissimo, I focus on personal coaching. Together with Robin van den Berg I have founded Kambaka, which specialises in nature team coaching. If you want to know more, have a look at our website.

Apart from my work, I am still a political addict, I read a lot and I am an outdoor fan. I love being in nature, I have two dogs and I walk at least an hour every day. And finally, although I was born in The Netherlands, the mountains have always been my home.
