Moving abroad is more than adopting to a new culture
Moving abroad entails more than cultural obstacles and language barriers. It also brings change into your life on every dimension. Relationships and marriages do change along the way, friends are missed, professional identity is on stake and most women are struggling finding new fulfillment in their life when the former job can’t be packed in a box and brought along on this adventure of living abroad. This website is here to help, to inspire, to empower, and to show you that the time abroad is a great opportunity for personal development if used right. You will find stories of expats around the world, useful tips & tricks to plan your job hunt, coaching exercises to broaden your mindset, helpful guides to feel at home abroad, and great resources for direct download.

Hi! I am Kate, an intercultural coach / career consultant / Marketing expert, driven by curiosity and the goal to explore the world. I have worked and lived in 5 different countries so far but nothing shaped me like my current Expat Experience.
I am on a mission to help women who moved abroad, repatriated to their home country or re-joined the job market after spending valuable time with their family in finding their professional identity and start to trust in their skills and impact.
How I can help you
Being an Expat Partner myself, I went through the personal journey of moving abroad and inventing myself again and again.

So I created a choice of products & services that fill different needs and challenges. Let’s dive in and for any questions please do not hesitate and send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org

The phenomenon that some expat partners take the plunge and start their own business abroad has interested me since we moved countries a couple of years ago.

We just came back from a one week vacation to Florida, and there have been a couple of things that caught my eyes. We loved the sun after a brutal winter in Chicago tried to do a more relaxing vacation. So we concentrated on the South of Florida visiting Fort Meyers, Sanibel Island, Naples, Key West, and Miami (Beach). Spending some quality time there I could not stop realizing some interesting things, and I thought I had to share it with you to see if you had similar experiences.

Finding friends abroad is a challenging but rewarding process. In the expat world, friendship is often intense, short, and always comes with a good-bye at a certain point. In this blog post, I talk about how to approach this emotional topic and stay in contact throughout the shared time abroad.
