Live a Life you Love –

Simplifying complex lives, careers, and relationships for expats, global nomads, Third Culture Kids (TCKs) and diplomats on assignment

As a life coach for global nomads, I help my clients reconnect with themselves, bring impacts to the world, create deeper connections with their families, and live joyful, fulfilling lives – all across the globe.

Despite enjoying amazing life experiences abroad, global nomads, expats, TCKs and diplomats often feel like it’s too complicated to carve out their dreams. And when this happens, their relationships with their partners, themselves, and loved ones can suffer as a result.

Whether your professional degree is not recognized in your new home, you’re ready to change direction or reinvent yourself, or you want to build strong connections with your partner and children, I help you get where you want to be.



No need to explain- I get it

For the last 20 years, I have lived in France, the UK, Italy, the United States, Kenya, and Zimbabwe. Before finding my calling as a certified life coach for global nomads, I worked in the field of international development — and I loved it.

But I didn’t always feel like I was living to my full potential. I wanted this life, it was my dream, I worked hard at it, and I am proud of it. And yet… I felt like something was missing and too complicated at the same time.

Like you, I have packed and unpacked my family in record time, recreated my professional identity, and navigated new cultures. I know what it’s like to have ticked all the boxes on paper and still feel unfulfilled.

I know what it’s like to wonder what’s next and whether it’s the right time or the right thing. I know how uncomfortable it can be to hear a simple question like, “What brought you here?” or “What do you do?”.  I’ve also felt disconnected from the people who mean the most to me, and worried about the long-lasting impact that a nomadic life might have on our TCKs (our third-culture kids).

Then, I discovered the truth: I could reinvent myself thousands of times and move to twenty countries, but I could never unleash real change while suffering from self-doubt.

I had to believe in my vision.

I had to believe that I could create a successful life coaching business and do what I love: supporting global nomads, expats, and diplomats in receiving clarity in their expat life, while also being the spouse and parent I want to be.

Now, I look forward to helping you find your vision, step into your purpose, and reconnect to what matters most.
