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.

Every once in awhile, we get triggered to step out our own comfort zone. For me personally, this often involves public speaking or sales pitches. Those are things that are just not meeting my core strengths. While others love to present themselves, I prefer to put the content in the spotlight instead of me as a person.
