Yvonne finished her medical education in 2015, with Neurology being the focal point from the beginning. During her studies she explored the fields of teaching (which she loves to do!) and research. She started her Neurology residency at the Leiden University Medical Center in 2017 and began her PhD at the NMD group in April 2023 with Jan Verschuuren and Martijn Tannemaat. In her research, she will focus on fatigue in patients with Myasthenia Gravis. They are in the explorative phase, but are really motivated to set up a trial to investigate the effect of certain interventions on fatigue. In her free time she loves to wander around in nature with her family or hang out with friends. Travelling and hiking are her biggest passions and she is exploring how to make that work with her son and a little one on the way.
