About me

HomeBabyBRAINJosje de Valk

With great pleasure I completed my master's degree in Psychology a couple of years ago. In the years that followed, I worked both in research and in the field of communication. In my current position as outreach manager, I can combine my passion for research with my interest in marketing and communication.

Among other things, I'm responsible for the BRC Social media accounts (excluding Twitter), the website and on- and offline newsletters. In addition, I'm working on matters regarding branding and I aim to enthuse as many parents as possible to participate in our research. Do you follow our posts and stories on Facebook or Instagram? That's probably me.

Together with my colleague Lena Ackermann I'm also involved in building bridges between science and practice. We do this for instance by starting and maintaining contact with organisations who work with babies and children. Examples are midwife practices, maternity nurses and child daycare centers.
