Victorien Madsen, Administrative Coordinator
Digital Media

Victorien Madsen has a master’s degree in business economics from the University of Maastricht. Having started her career in asset management in New York, the successful treatment of her ulcerative colitis with a therapeutic diet put her on a mission to share her story and help others. She consequently shifted gears towards nutrition and web-development with an aim to make nutritional therapy a part of the standard IBD treatment. She started her own Dutch website – Curingfood.com - and Facebook group (IBD & Leefstijl) and translated “Breaking the vicious cycle” into Dutch. She believes that Nutritional Therapy is not just about reducing symptoms and possibly medication, it is about improving the quality of life of all IBD patients. Victorien lives in Oegstgeest, the Netherlands, with her Danish husband Chris and three children, and enjoys tennis, running, yoga, cooking and reading.
