In 2011, Julie’s husband was offered the extraordinary opportunity to live and work in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China for 3 years. So, Julie took on the challenge of moving her 3 children, husband and cat abroad. This experience has created a true appreciation of different cultures and a deep understanding of culture shock and adjustment.
