About me

‘My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style’

Maya Angelou

I’m Rebecca Hilton, travel-lover, reading obsessive and mum-of-two doing my best to navigate life in a different country. I’m from the UK but  over the last few years I’ve been trying to make wherever ‘here’ is feel like home – from Thailand to Germany and who knows where next…

My mission, to paraphrase the wonderful Maya Angelou, is to thrive, and not just survive in these expat postings. And if I can help you too, by sharing my experiences and advice (usually learned from having done things the hard way..) then that’s even better.

So, a bit about me. My career was in marketing and change management and I worked for several large multinational organisations in the UK before my husband’s job took us to Thailand. And then I had to work out who I was as an expat wife. It was a challenge, but also a wonderful opportunity.

When we moved to Germany, I really felt like I needed support, but it wasn’t easy to find. So, I decided to do it myself and set up ‘Making Here Home’. I offer expat coaching to other women (and men) on the move, to help them find themselves in their new home, and to really make the most of their time living overseas – to overcome the challenges and to maximise the opportunities.

If you are interested in finding out more about coaching, or anything else on the website,  please get in touch here hello@makingherehome.com. I’d love to hear from you.

Rebecca
