After a posting of four and a half years in Spain, Josien experienced reverse culture shock when repatriating back to the Netherlands. Both of her children were born in Spain, and are proud little TCKs. Her family also experienced a split family situation for three years, with her husband working in Vienna and France. After three years living in Uruguay, they had a ‘Covid stopover’ of a year and a half in the Netherlands. In 2022 they moved to Germany.
Josien loves her work as a Global Connection consultant, supporting expat partners to find fulfilling pastimes. When not working, she enjoys family time and sports.
