Mother, entrepeneur and paralegal
Hello, my name is Ulrike Jansen-Schwaab. I was raised within a retailer's family as the youngest of three daughters on Rotterdam's "Noordereiland".
I am married to the most awesome guy in the world and together we are the parents of two adult children. Great people each of them gifted with beautiful talents they use thoroughly in their day-to-day activities and work. As a working mother I have experienced more than 30 years the Dutch notarial practice. I am convinced the right way to deliver is a creative way loaded with integrity, empathy and the human touch. Being graduated as a Dutch "notarisklerk", which is the equivalent of a "paralegal" I can handle each legal field of the notarial practice.
As a result of my social and religious commitment I have been a volonteer within the church, sports and society. These activities enclose management as well as executive roles. Presently I am in function as secretary of the choir management board of the Parish Choir "Saint Gregorius".
As a volonteer with the Dutch Association of the Order of Malta I perform as good as I can the charity care in real practice to the pour and sick.
Furthermore I am a member of a political party, through which I perform in the neighbourhoud team of Rotterdam-Prins Alexander as eyes and ears of its inhabitants. And last but not least I am a member of the Catholic Women's Debating Society (Rotterdam Circle), which is a debating society founded by several leading politically and socially engaged ladies, of whom Marga Klompé was in 1956 the first Dutch female minister in the Netherlands. Today the circles of concerned women debate in a setting of friendship on all kinds of questions that matter in our today's society.
Music, hockey and gardening
In my scarse freetime you can find me playing the recorder in a small amateur recorder ensemble, as a choir soprano in a church choir, as a lecturer in the church or as a hockey referee along the line of a hockey field.
And when you think I really have disappeared? Don't worry, I am gardening. A great way to relax by effort. If you can't reach me because of any of these activities, please use the voicemail or send an e-mail.
