Moving is stressful, especially if you’re packing up your home and uprooting your family, your LIFE, clear across the globe. I get it because I’ve been there. From New York to London to Doha and back to New York again, I’ve had to relocate my family, navigate new languages, local customs, and complicated health care systems—not to mention finding reliable doctors and pet care!
And let’s not forget about the months spent scoping out after-school activities for the kids, weekend getaways, local eateries and top shops.
I know what it’s like to move to a new city and feel anxious about everything from figuring out currency conversions and mastering the local lingo to finding the best schools for my children and making friends. I know about the anxiety of being confronted with a whole new world to navigate while my partner is at the office. Now, you have a trusted guide to the city.
Relocation is exhausting and time-consuming, but it doesn’t have to be. I’m passionate about helping families start new and exciting chapters in their lives after they’ve unpacked their bags and unloaded the boxes.
I founded Bennett & Partners because I wanted to make the relocation process simple, seamless, and satisfying so you can spend more time with the people who matter most.
