Anouk Tompot was born and raised in Amsterdam, Holland and studied biology at the University of Amsterdam, where she received a Master’s degree and worked at the department of Biology and Society. Disillusioned by the limits of western scientific to address what life is, Anouk explored many eastern and mystical traditions and systems. One of the many things she gained in raising her three children was to find Waldorf education. Anouk discovered a bridge between east and west when she encountered Anthroposophy and the physical, social and spiritual aspects of life came together. She took the Waldorf High School Training in Sacramento in 2008 and started teaching biology at the Denver Waldorf School. Anouk lives with her husband and children in Seattle, where she currently teaches life science at the Seattle Waldorf High School.
