Chair

Infomarkcommittee

sandwich committee

Hi everyone!!
My name is Quinten Nijenhuis and I am incredibly excited to be the chairman of Archaeopteryx for the coming year! In addition to being the face of the association, I will work with the information market committee to ensure that we will fill Andro's hall with animals and animal lovers next year. Together with the sandwich committee I will also put my taste buds to work and ensure that sandwiches can be eaten every day that are a true taste sensation. I am also currently in the first year of my master's degree in Farm Animals, but that doesn't mean I don't have a passion for wildlife and abroad. There is in fact enough veterinary medicine to do at the management level of, for example, nature parks. I think it's really cool and important to look at whole populations of animals and keep them healthy. In the time I have left outside of school and archy, I really enjoy hanging out with friends and going on adventures outside. Finally, I really enjoy meeting new people so I look forward to seeing you all! So feel free to contact me! See you soon :)

Vice President

Aquafauna working group

BLE committee

hey everyone :)

My name is Denise and I am 21 years old. I am currently in my third bachelor year. I was born in the south of our country in Maastricht. This year I am responsible for approaching and bringing in new sponsors and I am also responsible for the parents' day and first-year introduction.  I am a huge water rat. When the weather is nice with a good wind you can find me on a surfboard and I love to relax in the lake. I also give windsurfing lessons to younger children. I also love swimming and water polo. You'll probably guess it, but I have a weakness for aquatic animals and that's how I ended up in the aquafauana working group via Archaeopteryx in my first year. It is therefore with great joy that I am the chairman of the aquafauna committee this year.  

Ever since I was little, I have loved discovering new places and spending time together  traveling with my family. I have already been able to visit a lot of beautiful places and eat delicious food in many places. Now I hope this year that there will be another nice trip with, of course, good food. Now I can announce with great pleasure that I am also chairman of the BLE (excursion abroad trip) committee.  

I'm really looking forward to next year and especially come and get to know me during the breaks! If you have any questions, you can always email me at vicevoorzitter@archaeopteryx-online.com

Secretary

KKF working group

Leisure committee

Hi everybody,

I am Giselle Fransen and I am now in the second year of my bachelor. Before this I did another year of biology, but I soon found out that I wanted to become a veterinarian after all. I immediately joined Archaeopteryx and then became active in the KKF working group. A year later I can now call myself secretary of this great association! I will also chair the KKF working group and the break committee.  

I live in Utrecht with a good friend and our cat Pepper. The cat and I have a bit of a love-hate relationship, but in the end it's a sweet animal :) In my spare time I work at a petting zoo. I really enjoy taking care of the animals and also teaching the children more about the animals. Although my main interest lies in the rabbits and rodents, I think it is great to still be involved with the cows, sheep and goats. I spend the time that I have left with friends or lazily on the couch.  

I am really looking forward to this year and to see you all during activities or during the break where you can taste our delicious grilled sandwiches. If you have any questions, you can always email to secretaris@archaeopteryx-online.com.

Treasurer

Terrarium working group

master committee

Hi Hi,  

My name is Danielle Maris and I will take up the position of treasurer this year. I'm in the last year of my masters degree in companion animal medicine and I'm really looking forward to finishing my masters with the board of this great association. I have been active in the aquafauna working group, but I actually like all exotic animals. Coming year I will therefore act as chair of the terrarium working group and of the masters committee and organize many fun activities and lectures together. In addition to studying, I try to make time for sports, horseback riding and seeing friends. Furthermore, if I have the chance, I like to go on adventures abroad. I hope to meet you all soon!

Editor

Bird working group

Capita Selecta Committee

Hello everyone,

My name is Dion and I may take on the position of editor this year, I will also be chairman of the bird working group and member of the CS committee. I am now a second year student of veterinary medicine and have been active in Archaeopteryx' bird working group since i started studying here. I work at the bird shelter in Naarden and occasionally voluntarily at the hedgehog shelter in Huizen. Later I hope to become a wildlife vet, which in my opinion certainly includes the birds. Since I started at the bird sanctuary in 2015, I have become completely mad about birds and I hope to continue to develop in that field of veterinary medicine. Before I started my studies, I spent six months in Costa Rica helping out at various wildlife shelters where the vets got me crazy excited about wildlife medicine. It is now clear to me what I want to become and that is why Archaeopteryx is the best association for me.

General Board Member

Wildlife working group

Symposium Committee

Hey everyone!!

My name is Remco Nederlof and I am in the third year of my bachelor. This year I will take on the great position of general board member. This means that you will see me regularly, because I manage the social media and the website and also create the newsletter! You can always contact me for (ideas for) archy merchandise! I have always had a passion for wildlife. Secretly I love all wildlife, but if I really had to choose, I would definitely go for the Australian marsupials. Fortunately, I will not have to part with this working group next year, and I will become the new chairman! In addition to the wildlife working group, I will also take care of the symposium committee and we will certainly make it a cool event! The few hours of free time I have left in the week are often filled with friends or binge-watching the latest Netflix series. I'm really looking forward to this year and I hope to meet you all during the break. Is this not possible, but do you still have questions, comments, or ideas? Then you can always app me, or you can email me at ab@archaeopteryx-online.com

See you soon!
