"I wanted to tell you how much I loved your workbook. I find it is an amazing tool for expats that are beginning their journey or someone like me that will be moving for the third time! I wish that I had that tool the first time that we moved because it was hard for my husband to understand what I was going through. So this time around I made the choice that he reads it too!!"

"It was great to meet Katharina for the coaching session today. It helped me a lot clarifying different questions I had. I wish every expat spouse would have the opportunity for such a coaching. I also recommend her workbook which I used the last weeks very much. It really helped me to get a clear understanding of what it means to go abroad, beeing an expat spouse, make yourself ready for the new job market etc. I strongly recommend to send Katharins's workbook to other spouses prior to their move. I am very happy that I was lucky to find her services myself and I would like to thank Katharina for her great job!" Claudia

As an Expat Partner herself, Katharina knows what it feels like to quit a promising career and start all over again during the limited time of an expatriation abroad. 

Katharina worked as a Marketing & Management consultant before moving from Germany to the States for her husband’s job and the adventure of exploring the world. She has studied and worked in 4 different countries, and it’s her vision to empower Expat Partners to live a fulfilling Expat life without being the dependent partner.

Anna Fadeeva-Feigenbaum

I can't believe how comprehensive it is! You have done an incredible job and have created a resource that expat partners are in need of!"

In October 2016, I became an expat wife, moving to California to support my husband's career aspirations. The majority of expat partners are unable to work. For the last 22 months I make up part of that statistic. Thankfully, I have enjoyed rewarding volunteer opportunities, and the academic challenge of an MBA.  It was a massive honor to be interviewed by Katharina von Knobloch, and share my journey with her. Her website, share the love - a guide for the modern Expats, and her coaching guide, is littered with stories of inspirational woman, taking bold decisions to support their life partner, and in the process reengineer their lifestyle, and career. Very inspiring and incredibly helpful and authentic workbook !!!

Moving abroad can be a true life changer for the entire family and having someone like Katharina on your side, who is a clear expert in her field, certainly helps to navigate through times of uncertainty. I actively engaged with Katharina already before my relocation, which has helped me become aware of some of the potential ups and downs before the change kicks in. I found the workbook especially useful and read it as a preparation and even an inspiration on how to best use my time abroad. Simone Podcorny
