About Sophie Simons

I was born and raised in England, and educated at University in Edinburgh and the Freie Universität, Berlin.


After graduation. I traveled to Jamaica and worked for 3 years in Hotel Management and Sales for a five-star resort on Jamaica's north coast.  Subsequently, I was recruited by an NGO, Project Orbis International, and traveled as an Administration Officer and Frontwork Coordinator throughout Asia and the Middle East. In 1995, I moved to Houston, Texas to start a family and experienced severe 'culture shock' for the first time.


In 1997, I became an Intercultural Trainer, Coach, and Consultant, and have worked with 1000s of people beginning a new stage in their life and career outside of their home culture.
