Hi, I’m Katia.
I’m here to help you break free from what’s keeping you stuck
and pursue your aspirations without feeling guilty.
You are a talented, ambitious, globally minded woman with big dreams and equally big potential. But you currently feel trapped, unfulfilled and not in control of your life. You want to get unstuck and make bold decisions to change your life, but don’t know where to start.
You’ve come to the right place.
A bit of background…
I’m Katia Vlachos. I’m a certified life coach, writer, and global nomad.
I was born in Cameroon, Central Africa, raised in Greece and have been an expat, living and working in the US and various European countries for the past 25+ years. My current home is in Zurich, Switzerland.
I’m a researcher and policy analyst by training with a Master’s from Harvard and a Ph.D. from the RAND Corporation. In my previous career, I worked as a security and defense analyst, in the United States and Europe.
After more than a decade in the field, I made the bold decision to exit the world of defense and reinvent myself completely. Going through a challenging expat move sparked in me the passion to help other global nomads make smoother transitions and, ideally, build thriving lives abroad. I decided to follow that passion and write my book, A Great Move: Surviving and Thriving in Your Expat Assignment, a guide for making successful international moves.
There were other bold decisions, big and small, along the path of reinvention, including one to leave my marriage and start over. Somewhere along the way I discovered coaching—and my true purpose in life. I trained at the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) and became a Certified Professional Co-Active coach (CPCC) and a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF).
I have made it my mission to support brilliant, capable, global women like you who feel trapped by their own choices—whether that’s taking a step back in their career, moving to a new country or starting a family—and want to live up to their full potential and pursue their aspirations without being weighed down by guilt or overwhelm.
If this resonates with you or if you are in the midst of a life transition and stuggling, I am here to help! I’ll be happy to connect and offer you a free introductory call.
