she has represented the nation at one FIFA Women's World Cup and two UEFA Women's Euro tournaments. 

She played for Bristol Academy Women in the inaugural 2011 FA WSL campaign. 

Hoogendijk came to prominence aged 12, as a contestant on the "Geef Nooit Op" (Never Give Up) TV program. 

She wished to train with FC Utrecht and, after a spell with Saestum, eventually signed for Utrecht at the outset of the Eredivisie Vrouwen in 2007. 

Hoogendijk realised her ambition of playing abroad when she signed an eight-month contract with English WSL club Bristol Academy in January 2011. 

In February 2012 Hoogendijk returned to Utrecht, before moving on to newly formed Ajax Vrouwen in May 2012.  

The transfer represented "a dream come true" for Hoogendijk as she had been a girlhood supporter of Ajax's male team. 

In June 2013 national team coach Roger Reijners selected Hoogendijk in the Netherlands squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013 in Sweden.
