Her journalistic career started at the daily Trouw. On 11 June 2001, she received the Anne Vondeling prize for her publications in the year 2000. Foreign the award she received 5000 guilders and a sculpture of Anne Vondeling.
As a republican, Dresselhuys opined that the abdication of Beatrix in 2013 should have been seized to abolish the Dutch monarchy.
