Secretary ISA Umami 

Hi there!


My name is Tessa van der Geld and I am 21 years old. Although I am currently living in Venlo, I have my roots in Boxtel, a cosy village in Brabant. During my bachelor in Food Technology at HAS University of Applied Sciences in Den Bosch, I always had an interest in functional and healthy foods. For this reason, I decided to move to Venlo and take on an new challenge by starting the master Health Food Innovation Management. What I really like of the program is  the business oriented aspect in combination with the PBL study system. This provides a good insight in the food industry and future opportunities in preventing health problems by developing healthy food products.

I am excited to be part of the board of ISA Umami 2017-2018. As secretary I am responsible for all the communication around ISA Umami, this includes responding to incoming mail, creating the monthly newsletter, updating the HFIM and ISA Umami social media (you can find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Linkedin), taking the boards minutes, assisting my fellow board members in their tasks, and most importantly, having fun! If you have any questions or remarks, please feel free to contact me.
