NBSO Texas team
News from the office
Dear network:

After five and a half years of working at the NBSO and this network, it’s hard to leave this great job and this fantastic state behind. I would like to thank y’all for your valuable support. I leave the NBSO Texas proud of the projects that we build together and the fact that Texas is on the map!

In my new role as senior Advisor Infrastructure and Water Management at the Netherlands Embassy in DC, I stay within the network and I’ll always be connected to Texas, because water is one of my focus areas.

I'm confident that the team will keep growing this wonderful mission, and I encourage you to continue participating in all their initiatives.

See you soon!
