Marjolein studied psychology and music composition at UC Davis. She loved learning about human development during her undergrad, and feels happiest when she is using music as a form of self-expression and connectedness to others. Having grown up in the redwood forests of Santa Cruz, nature has always been an integral part of her life. Marjolein enjoys hiking, talking about mental health, and making music. She is thrilled to combine all of these passions to inform how she teaches at Peregrine. In the future, she hopes to continue onto a career path in education.
