Annemarie is from the Netherlands. She has a teaching background but has worked in several other fields including social services, childcare and editing. She served on school boards before coming to Portugal and was IWP’s secretary in 2020. She is now moving to the post of member designate. Annemarie is married to Ronald; they have two daughters who are studying in Amsterdam. In the autumn of 2018, she and her husband moved to Parede into what was Ronald’s former family home and have been making it their own over the past little while. Annemarie loves art, crafts, the natural world, museums and reading. She is looking forward to exploring all of this and more with IWP and its members in the future!
