On this page, we would like to introduce the Study Career Coaches of the academies International Hotel Management and Real Estate and Facility Management.
Study Career Coaches
My name is Remco Vrieze and I one of your Tutors / Study Career Coaches at the NHTV Sibeliuslaan. I hold a Bachelor degree in Hotel Management from the Hotelschool The Hague where I did my internship at Walt Disney World, Orlando, USA.
I started my working career as Project Manager for Ins & Outs catering (exclusive catering to, for instance, heads of state and members of the royal family) and Christiaan Hanssen Standcatering (Catering for Dutch companies on International trade fairs). After this I started working at Hilton Hotels Worldwide and was the Food & Beverage Manager for the Hilton Curacao, Dutch Antilles. After getting married on the beach to my wife Karin, we transferred to Hilton Cairns, Australia. In Australia I was F&B manager for a totally different market (Japanese guests & Backpackers).
In 2009 we came back to The Netherlands and when my wife was pregnant, the grandmas wouldn’t let us go abroad anymore and I started working at the NHTV Sibeliuslaan as Instructor Restaurant, Grand Café & Coffee Corner, which I loved. In January 2015 I transferred to the position of Tutor/Study Career Coach which I’m enjoying thoroughly!! Besides my position as SCC, I provide hospitality training to outside companies for NHTV Hospitality@Work and am the Placement Coach for the Dutch Antilles (Curacao, Bonaire, Aruba).
As mentioned above, I’m married to Karin and we now have two beautiful daughters, Noni (7) & Lina (4). We live in Hellevoetsluis (close to Rotterdam). Besides spending time with my family I like playing tennis and golf.
My values are Communication, Honesty, Fun, Enthusiasm, Participation & Having a “can do attitude”!
I hope your first year is a great one and please let me know if I can assist in any way!!
Have fun at the InterSib and maybe I’ll see you there.
My name is Myranda and I would like to welcome you to our great academy, I think you will enjoy it here What have I done? Some years ago I finished my study Communication Science and worked several years as a Communication Advisor for different companies. In 2008 I started to work for the NHTV. The best thing about education are the students; trying to inspire them and make a difference in their academic life.
Other things about me? I am married with Peter, have 3 wonderful children Isabelle (16), Julia (14) and Tristan (11). I have lived for over 20 years now in Breda, and love the “Brabantse” state of mind. I enjoy the good things in life; nice food with a good glass of wine, sports and seeing something of the world.
I hope to meet you all during the InterSib and otherwise we will meet at the Sibeliuslaan.
See you, Myranda
Ingrid van Berlo
Welcome at the Intersib. The coming years I will be your study career coach. What that all entails I will explain in you in your first week. To have a first impression I will tell some more about myself. I love to coach and train students in their personal and professional development. I am always curious what motivates and inspires you. Tell your stories and we will find great opportunities for your development! Working at an education also means constantly developing yourself. For that reason I finished a Master education in Social Studies. I live in ‘s Hertogenbosch together with my boyfriend and little girl. I love to hike in the forest and I love to dance. So in the weekends you can find me at the dance floor. I wish you all a great time at the Intersib and meet you soon!

Marjolijn van Schaik
My name is Marjolijn van Schaik and I am one of the coaches.
Besides being a coach/trainer I am also a member of the Organisational Behaviour Team as I have great interest in what moves people.
My background is in hospitality and I did my training Hotelmanagement & Facility in Maastricht, many, many moons ago….
Together with my husband and three sons (my daughter’s left the nest) I live on a farmhouse near to Breda. My hobbies are fitness, yoga and horse riding. I love designer handbags, shoes and dresses – call me shallow!
I’m very passionate about my work and enjoy every day at the Sibeliouslaan.
I hope you feel at home with us soon and wish you a fun and challenging new episode!
Looking forward to meeting you,
Welcome to the NHTV, a place and time you will remember and look back upon for the rest of your life. You will start building your professional career here, but equally important, you will make friends, enrich your international experience, by meeting people from different cultures and create memories that you will cherish.
About 10 years ago, like you I myself , was at the beginning of the path you are about to follow now, and I still recall the study material and memories from that time. They will linger with for as long as you enjoy what you are doing. Make sure you enjoy and live each moment to the max!
When I was about 12 I began working in the hospitality industry and moved through different departments and cities before returning again to the NHTV. Most recently I was managing the operations of 2 hotels in Brussels.
I still live close to Brussels together with my girlfriend who is doing her master at the University of Brussels. In my free time I like to travel and meet people, see friends, cook, and I enjoy doing sport. Most important is that I always fully enjoy every moment.
I’m looking forward meeting you all and please remember that “my door is always open!”
Welcome at the NHTV! The school where you will have a great time during your eductional years.
As of next year, I will be one of the new Study Career Coaches and I’m really looking forward to meet you after the holidays!
In 2010 I finished my BBA Facility Management at the NHTV in Breda. Since last year I am a Study Career Coaches at the NHTV and I really love to work with people en share my experience through coaching, training and motivating students. Before that I have worked for 7 years as an Accountmanager at Camelot Europe. My job was to advice real estate owners about security, vacancy property management, facility management and real estate solutions. Within these years I learned a lot and I am looking forward to share my experience with all of you! As of next year, I will start teaching Corporate Real Estate Management to year 1 and 2 together with Pieter le Roux.
Besides work, I love to travel and learn about other cultures. Next to that, I like to do sports like boxing, bodypump, yoga and I practice moderne dance.
I am looking forward to meet you all at the Intersib!
