In the spring of 2017, my family and I relocated from Portland, Oregon, USA to Utrecht, Netherlands. With research and ultimately, an intuitive decision, we chose Utrecht as the next place to call home.
Since we came for an adventure, rather than a job, it opened up a sense of possibility and reinvention for us. We have since established our businesses. I went back to my coaching and intuition roots, as it's what I love to do and have over 15 years in this industry. Paul is a Native English Copywriter for Dutch businesses & beyond.
Inspired by this big move, I founded passion projects related to life as an expat. Expat Life Utrecht is a podcast launching in the Fall 2018. If you're local to Utrecht and would like to be a guest, fill out your interest here.
Utrecht Skillshare & Utrecht Mamas Skillshare are my other projects, where we focus on creating community through learning. All members are invited to be hosts and guests, where we share our skills, interests, passions, talents, and culture through informal classes.
