I am Jennifer Bijkerk, a strategic product developer. Besides interests in packaging, product development, strategy, and sustainability I have a passion for surfing. My commitment to this sport also represents how I am in my work and everyday life. I like to learn new things, want the best possible result and I like to create things together with others. Besides surfing I keep myself busy with climbing, playing guitar, cooking, snowboarding, travelling and more.

In August 2013 I finished my masters degree in Industrial Design Engineering with a thesis about integrating sustainability aspects in the packaging development process. After finishing I traveled through Southeast Asia for about three months before continuing my professional career. Currently I am working as a development engineer within Avery Dennison, a manufacturer of pressure sensitive label solutions.
