My name is Heleen Zweepe and I am 23 years old. I am from Almere and moved to Venlo for this masters program. So far I am really happy with this choice! Before I started Health Food Innovation Management at Maastricht University, I studied Nutrition & Dietetics in Amsterdam. I chose to study HFIM because I like challenges. I also think the combination of nutrition and health with business and management, consumer sciences and food law is unique.
The HFIM masters is quite small, but because of this we all became close friends in a short amount of time. We all try to make the most out of our time in Venlo and this is also why I wanted to join ISA-Umami.
I am happy to be the new secretary of ISA-Umami in the academic year 2019-2020. As secretary, I am responsible for all communication around ISA-Umami, this includes responding to incoming mail, creating the monthly newsletter, updating the ISA-Umami social media (you can find us on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn), taking the boards minutes, assisting my fellow board members in their tasks, and most importantly, having fun!
I am really looking forward to work together with the other board members to make it an unforgettable year for all Umami members. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions.
See you soon!
