Margriet has been raised in Friesland which is a province in the north of the Netherlands. She was an athlete (swimmer) and moved to Amsterdam to pursue a career in swimming. She started working at a bank with mortgages after her swim career ended. She likes to have personal contact with customers and therefore started as a junior advisor with Expat Mortgages. In her spare time Margriet likes to read, travel and spend time with friends and family. She still likes to do sports but is more of a supporter now a days.
