Nadine Rijk studied Plant Sciences at Wageningen University. After her master, she found a job at Fides, a plant breeding company.
At Fides Nadine develops new flower bulb species, which are then produced on a larger scale by plant breeders. The flower bulbs she develops eventually become available in gardening centres. Her broad academic background has proved very useful in her work.
Nadine is very enthusiastic about her job: “We make the most beautiful geraniums that all grandmothers have ever seen!”
