Silver Presidential Director at Mannatech Inc.
After studying medicine at Leiden University, Helena Wilkens first followed her dream and went on to work as a basic doctor in Biharamulo, Tanzania for almost half a year. It was there that she found out her next dream: to be a urologist. She followed her training in general surgery and urology in the Rotterdam region, Netherlands. After 6 years, she focused on a career as a urologist in Schiedam, for the past 10 years. Her main expertise are uro-oncology (kidney and bladder cancer), laparoscopic surgical interventions, and general urology.
Helena has been an active member of the board of Urologists Rotterdam-Noord for the last 6 years. She was one of the founders of the Bladder Cancer Centre based in Erasmus Medical Centre. This center was founded through the collaboration of urologists of the Rotterdam region, to bring quality care, possibilities for trials and research and co-operation in the region to a higher level.
In her spare time, Helena is part of a competitive softball-team (D2 HSV Adegeest). She will compete with her husband in the world championship Hobie16, which will take place the summer of 2017 in Noordwijk. She loves music, plays several instruments and enjoys making music with her children.
