Before Jimble, I founded two other successful businesses which mostly taught me that I don’t like hierarchy and that I’m not at all impressed with titles. After all, we’re all the CEOs of our own lives.
My strongest quality surfaced quite early on in my career: I love to be of service! Back in 2016 when I launched Jimble with my partner Calvin we felt this business could really do with an upgrade in that sense: service is key, and the only way to achieve that is by really listening, reading between the lines. I manage, coach and advise everyone on team Jimble. Yet in the end, I’m just one of the team. To me it’s about continuously innovating and making sure everyone stays motivated. I like to create a working space that’s peaceful, safe, leaving room for everyone to explore and excel. It’s wonderful to see how we as a team are constantly challenging and learning from one another.
Personally, I’m all about the helicopter view, always thinking three steps ahead. It often feels like there are too little hours in a day; I’d rather be tired than lazy. Both in my professional and personal life I’ve been able to adapt to any type of situation. I think that’s brought me to where I am today.’

With my experience working in sales, taxes and customs, in expat centers and at the municipality, it was only a small step to freelancing in relocation consultancy. Really knowing the business through and through I decided to start Jimble. Constantly innovating, I thrive on making inventive, out-of-the-box ideas a reality. Without prejudgments, without assumptions and without ever making promises we can’t keep! I really believe that these core values will help you all throughout life: from studies to career and relationships.
At Jimble we commit to establishing valuable relationships that last. I’m beyond proud of our team of amazing colleagues: all-rounders, always ready to help their peers and clients in whatever which way, with a deep understanding of what good service really entails.
At the office I’m known for my “dad jokes”, but of course I’m also very serious and direct when the situation so requires. Whether it’s about the job or something private, I’m always here to listen. A life coach, one of my colleagues once dubbed me. Most of all “what you see is what you get” pretty much sums up who I am: straight-forward, realistic and definitely a people’s person.’

I started out at a game development company and because of my strong analytical insight I ended up being their user acquisition manager. Since it was a start-up I also quickly got involved with hiring.
At Jimble I’m both the HR and Operations manager. I work closely with our founders, Wensley and Calvin, offering up a fresh perspective wherever I can. I’m a jack of all trades and a team player all the way. What I love most about my job here at Jimble is how versatile it is; you get to work with so many different people and cultures.
What I really enjoy is organizing a fun event for my team. To me a positive, uplifting company culture is everything! And my organizational skills are definitely my strong suit.
At the office I’m known to be the party girl and the office mom. Also, at home being the proud single mom of 2 young adults. We’ve had some ups and downs in life, but luckily I don’t get stressed or back down easily.’

A few years back I moved to The Netherlands from The States looking for a better quality of life, one that I definitely found here. I studied in Los Angeles, California, with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. During my ten years of management experience in retail and finances with two different firms I obtained my notaries certificate. Doing what I do now takes a very meticulous, strategic and well-organized approach. My colleagues will attest to the fact that I’m extremely reliable, and with such a big life change on the horizon clients definitely have to feel they can fully depend on you. I pride myself on two of my greatest strengths in life: leading by example and diplomacy. At the same time, you have to be flexible: no job is the same, each file is to be dissected, studied and followed through with a sense of empathy based on individual needs. This keeps me excited and motivated.’

Metropolitan places like New York and London have an energetic pull on me, but I have found my home here in The Netherlands. With the excellent bonus of being in any other lively European city within just a few hours car-drive.
My job as a client coordinator requires me helping new Amsterdammers (or elsewhere in the country) settle into their new surroundings. When all goes well, I find this to be extremely satisfying.
Every day at Jimble brings bold, new challenges: something I like to take head on. I’m pretty much stress-proof and I work very precisely and organized. This gives me the chance to navigate and solve any little roadblock that pops up along the way quite easily.
I’m not one to sit around and wait until something happens: I’m a go-getter. That’s also how I got this job – something I’m still grateful for to this day.’

My latest discovery: The Eisenhower Matrix! With this tool I can keep a clear overview, deciding along the way if there’s space for any type of “distraction”.
While being driven, knowledgeable and always helpful, I’m also known amongst my co-workers to love the finer things in life, namely fashion and food. Maybe that also stems from my multicultural and multi-lingual background. Aren’t fashion and food one of the best and definitely most delicious ways to get to know any culture?
I started out speaking four languages, after high school this came down to five. This obviously comes in handy as a client coordinator at Jimble, after finishing my studies in Marketing and Communications. My greatest accomplishment at Jimble? Being here from the very start and helping set up a sound structure for the business. This way people can really excel professionally.
As a person I would say I’m very open and open-minded: because of personal highs and lows I’m never afraid to take on a new challenge. Any new assignment that’s totally different from the previous one, bring it on.’

After the successful completion of my studies, I worked in various international companies, covering different positions such as Customer Service, Team Lead, Mobility Consultant, Project Manager, Office Manager and Sales Ambassador.
Here at Jimble, as Client Coordinator, I am responsible for offering full support to the Mobility Consultants and for managing the Departure Services and the Aftercare program we offer to our expat clients.
Among my colleagues I am known for my positive attitude, team spirit, and dedication. I consider my open and approachable personality an asset.
Some of my greatest strengths include inquisitiveness and willingness to learn and explore new avenues.
If I were to relocate myself, I would choose Bali, or Maldives… actually many more destinations! In such places you are in touch with nature and therefore with yourself! Furthermore, the friendliness of the locals, the great cuisine and the fascinating sceneries such places have to offer are beyond imagination!’
At Jimble I am responsible for Office Support, which includes supporting my colleagues in any way possible so that we can deliver excellent service to our clients.
My greatest strength would be that I am relaxed and always friendly. Maybe sometimes too relaxed haha. But being friendly helps a lot in maintaining good relationships.
If I were to emigrate myself, I would love to go to either Barcelona or Tokyo. Barcelona because of how beautiful the city is and how relaxed everyone is. Tokyo because of the work ethic and the constant rush the city has which gives you a lot of motivation.’
As a relocation consultant I aim to be of added value by helping people feel instantly at home. Oftentimes finding the perfect place to stay is the first step to getting there.
At business meetings with my colleagues I always hear: “Keep it short, Mona!” (Laughs) I guess I’m quite opinionated, I don’t like “no” for an answer and I definitely have a lot of stories to share.
Before I worked in marketing, PR and event organization for many a national and international company. I traveled a lot, worked with many different cultures.
Bali, Indonesia, has a special place in my heart, because of my Indonesian-Dutch heritage, as well as Hawaii! Many close friends live there and one of my favorite pastimes is Polynesian dancing.
The last couple of years before I joined Jimble I missed that “international experience”, something I value a lot.
My mentality has always been “can do”; I’m a problem solver to the core. All the while striving for harmonious ways of keeping any working relationship steady and healthy and keeping things positive.
Every day is a new opportunity!’

With my academic background in English Language and Literature and a Master’s degree in Intercultural Communication from Utrecht University, I first joined the Jimble team as their Social Media Intern. I quickly felt familiar with Jimble’s open and diverse organizational culture which led me to my current position as Jimble’s Content Creator. Now I am the one responsible for managing the social media and for coming up with original and creative content ideas for our website and our social platforms.
Among my colleagues, I am known for my young and lively spirits and my Mediterranean temperament, as well as for my stubbornness.
My biggest challenge here at Jimble is the fact that I am an expat myself and I am still trying to figure out how things work here in the Netherlands compared to what I have experienced back in Greece. However, this is also the most exciting part of my work too, since there is always something new to learn and I have my amazing colleagues to thank for!
I am very curious and intrigued by the cultural differences and I try to apply my expertise as an Interculturalist on a daily basis to unravel the mysteries of human behaviour and to understand the way different cultural backgrounds can affect how we behave and interact with each other. Since both my team here at Jimble and our expat clients are from different linguistic and cultural backgrounds, I am constantly faced with such instances of intercultural communication!
Outside work, you will find me working out at the gym, exploring the Dutch capital with my friends, or travelling to nearby-or not- places. My passion is learning foreign languages and immersing myself in different cultures. I am fluent in Greek, English and Spanish and currently learning French. My next target language? Dutch, of course!’
My roots lie both in Amsterdam East and Morocco – Nador, a coastal city in the wild Rif region that I love to visit to see family members – while I also worked and lived in Tenerife, on the Canary Islands for seven years. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, that’s an understatement. Both on the island and back in The Netherlands I worked in hospitality: from selling goods on the local market to holding the position of duty manager at multi-star hotels.
In the end I found my calling at Jimble, charged with operating several real estate properties. A great, ever dynamic opportunity that I thoroughly enjoy.
At the office I’m known as the “handy man”. Just like my fellow co-workers I’m very well rounded when it comes to work, and I’m very practical. If anything needs to get done, I’m on it and I make sure to get it sorted in no time.
Overall, I think it’s my life experience, solid faith in myself and simply courage that got me places. Every day I’m curious and excited to reach new heights in the professional field.’
