I'm Else, 36 years old. I moved to the Oregon Coast in June 2017. Where I live is kind of a remote area and -other than I expected- I miss the Dutch 'kneuterigheid'. I'm delighted to have found the Portland Dutch Society and hope to come for a borrel soon. Since Portland is still 2,5 hours away I was wondering if there are more people living on -or close to- the coast (Lincoln County) who would like to meet. 

I love to be outdoors; hiking, biking, surfing, stand up paddling. Wanna join me?

I'm also looking for a job around here. Does anybody know of a job, or do you want to share your experience starting to work in the US? Any advices? I am schooled as a physical therapist in The Netherlands, but since my license is not recognized here, I am willing to do any other job. I have medical and psychological knowledge, am physically fit and I speak English, Dutch, German and French. 

Please contact me if you feel like it!

Groetjes Else
