 Edward van den Bergh Director
“Amsterdam is a city that keeps surprising you! There are so many random things you can do, see and observe which constantly put a smile on your face. I love the sense of freedom you feel living here!”
Edward was born in the south of The Netherlands, the youngest of 3 boys. When Edward was just old enough to ride a bike, his parents decided it would be great to bring kids up in New Zealand. (By the way, he thinks they were right!). When asked his nationality, Edward would classify himself as 1/3 Dutch and 2/3 Kiwi!

After leaving New Zealand, Edward moved to England for 5 years before relocating to the Netherlands in 2000. There he met and married a Dutchie and is raising his Dutch/Kiwi blended family in the heart of Amsterdam! With his extensive career and personal experience in the Netherlands, Edward brings a broad network of connections to Expat Help.
 Roz Fremder Director
“I find the directness of the Dutch refreshing. You always know where you stand with a Dutchie! That coupled with the general tolerance and acceptance of the culture make The Netherlands an ideal place to call home!”
Roz was born and raised in a small mid-western town, but always had big dreams of travelling and living abroad. After relocating to several places within the United States, Roz finally had the opportunity to move internationally to The Netherlands in 2008. Roz had 17 years banking industry experience in marketing and project management but was looking for a career change. She found just what she was looking for with Expat HELP!

Roz now combines her project management skills with her passion for her new home city to ensure every relocation is a success.You might also have seen Roz on the popular television program House Hunter's International as she has appeared in several episodes as the real estate expert. She's also been on the Amsterdam editions of Tiny House World and Living Abroad. Roz's goal is for everyone to settle into life in Amsterdam quickly and enjoy the many things the city has to offer!

 Angela Rivera Relocation Specialist
“I love working in a city that reminds me of home. After all, this is where New Amsterdam in New York comes from. What better a place to live!”
A native New Yorker, Angela was born and raised in the Big Apple. That's also where she began her career in relocation. Angela lived in Sydney, Australia for a year before moving to The Netherlands in 2012.

 Francine Mathot Office Manager
“Amsterdam is a big city that feels like a small town. And everything is bike-able!”
Born in Amsterdam, Francine spent a large portion of her childhood in the UK and the USA with her family, as her father was an expat. She returned to Amsterdam over 17 years ago and has re-rooted herself here with her little family. Francine joined Expat Help in February 2016, bringing over 18 years of back office experience. Francine's organizational and administrative skills not only keep the office running smoothly but provide invaluable support to the Expat Help team!
 Katya Rosadiuk Relocation Specialist
“Amsterdam is truly a global city yet still feels like a village. Biking or boating around you get the best combination of old and new mixed in with a vibrancy that you don’t get anywhere else in Europe.”
Katya is Canadian-Brazilian and has been living in Amsterdam since 2003. Having been an expat herself and worked in relocation since 2005, Katya knows what is essential and vital to adjusting to life in a new country and city. Katya loves Amsterdam and believes this is the easiest city in the world to adjust to as an expat. And as a mother to two small children, Katya takes extra special care towards families to ensure that they have a smooth and happy transition into their new city.
 Tara Alapiessa Housing Consultant
“Amsterdam is a place where you can meet the most amazing and interesting people. It's a place where you can grow and learn. There's never a dull moment!”
Tara is truly an international woman and started her life as an expat! Born in Kenya and raised in England, Tara moved to Finland for 10 years before relocating to Amsterdam in 1999. Tara started her professional career as a teacher. Her empathy and true desire to help others is evident in her passion for helping expats find a home and settle into their new home city.
 Eeg de Veer Housing Consultant
“Amsterdam’s main attraction is the city of Amsterdam itself!”
Coming from the south of Holland, Eeg originally came up to Amsterdam just to study a couple of years and then return south. Instead, he fell in love with the city, and stayed permanently. Having worked for years with foreign visitors, tourists and corporate guests, Eeg knows exactly how Amsterdam life is for non-Dutchies, and how to make them feel at home.
When you ask Eeg what you should definitely see when visiting Amsterdam, he would advise to experience the city itself. Mingle in, wander around the different neighborhoods, and be part of one of the world’s most beautiful, tolerant, and easy-going villages in the world.
