Jolanda played in several major Dutch theatre productions and she appeared in various Dutch television series and movies, among others Black Out, De Boskampi’s and Raw Footage/Scapegoats from visual artist Aernout Mik. 

For some years, next to acting, Jolanda is also busy developing new plays. She played Sylvia Plath in a monologue based on the life of the American writer and poet. With Sytske van der Ster she developed and played Who's Afraid of Woody Allen. They continued their cooperation with NICO, a music theatre play about the lead singer of the Velvet Underground, that was successfully received on Theatre festival Boulevard.

Recently Jolanda was working on Code 66, a project by visual artist Christiaan Bastiaans, who previously worked with actress Jeanne Moreau. Currently Jolanda is developing a new play and working as a voice-over on several audio books. Coming fall she will be seen in the short movie Kissinger. The Last Hurrah in which she plays the role of Nancy Kissinger.

Jolanda is always a joy to work with! She adds something extra to the character. A lot of humor and a lovely timing. Bursting with energy! Love her.
