Maak kennis met Evert, Marieke, Monique en Theo!

Na een dag werken aan WordPress is het op zaterdag 2 september tijd om elkaar nog meer te leren over WordPress en alles daar omheen. We stellen jullie daarom graag voor aan de sprekers van WordCamp Nijmegen. Dit doen we in vijf berichten. Dit is het tweede bericht uit de serie.

Monique Dubbelman

Monique started working as a graphical designer and engineer somewhere in the 20th century. She discovered the web in the early 90ies and has been online ever since, exploring new possibilities. Her expertise shifted towards marketing, communications and web design. About 10 years ago, she started selling online and therefore built and designed her own webshop. She works as an entrepeneur in her own company BOE!media since 2011, advising sme’s on their digital (marketing) strategy. In 2016, she graduated from the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences as a bachelor in information management. Building websites with WordPress is an important part of her work. When she’s not glued to her phone or computer, this mudface likes to whisper to earth worms on her allotment.

Marieke van de Rakt

I studied Sociology and Communication Sciences at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. I obtained my PhD in Social Sciences in January 2011. Since then, I worked as a researcher as well as a teacher at multiple universities. Since the beginning of Yoast, I have been involved in the company. As of September 2013, I gave up my position at the university and decided to focus solely on my activities at Yoast.

I am now one of the partners at Yoast. Together with Joost, Michiel and Omar, I run Yoast. My main focus is on Academy; I develop products that help people to set up their own SEO strategy. I write blog posts, eBooks and develop online courses. My expertise is on SEO copywriting and site structure.

I’m married to Joost de Valk and we have four amazing children together.
