Marcella was born in a small village in The Netherlands. She was raised within a family of entrepreneurs and she honours that legacy to which she brings her own personal values of freedom, positivity, and openness. Together with her husband Aart, she is active in the global peace movement MasterPeace. They learn, every day, from young leaders from all over the world who share their talents while working to build a sustainable world with less armed conflict. This not only allows the couple to lead a more meaningful life but also reinforces their cross-cultural experience.
Marcella and Aart are blessed with two daughters and a half Italian grandson. She is especially aware of how lucky she is to still share the company and wisdom of her mother.
