After finishing her Psychosocial Studies at the Holland University in Amsterdam in 2004, Daphne Kaaijk held different functions in the field of youth and family social work at the Children and Youth Social Services Agency of the Dutch government where she developed strong interpersonal, communication and leadership skills. Besides her work in healthcare, she also took a part-time position in Status Plus where she was involved in the organization of both national and international meetings and events.

As an organizational super talent, Daphne has (co-)organized several meetings and events in the Netherlands, including the biannual conferences of the Dutch Society for Obstetrics and Gynecology (NVOG) and the scientific meetings of the Dutch Scientific Society for Sexual Health (NVVS). In 2020, she decided to take a step back from work but she remained and remains available to Status Plus and its clients to work on a project basis.
At this moment, she works to establish and support a Patient Advisory Council for the IUGA. She is a dedicated, very experienced and well-respected member of the Status Plus team known for her tireless commitment to her clients and her brilliant eye for detail.
