About me

Who am I?

Hi there!

My name is Laura and I work as a virtual assistant, travel planner, consultant and relocation expert at travelingtck.com. I’ve been fortunate enough to live in four countries and travel to several more around the world. Ever since I was a child I found the one thing I was most passionate about was being able to lend a hand to others. Truth be told, I feel a strong sense of purpose and enthusiasm when I can help others accomplish their goals. My life experiences include working in healthcare, tourism, hospitality and the education sector. From these experiences I’ve found a way to combine the two things I love most: traveling and helping other people. I understand the desire people have to travel but also mindful of the costs and concerns regarding going overseas, whether it’s a quick drive across the border or packing up your life in a box and saying goodbye to your home country. Additionally, I also understand that life on the road can get hectic with tasks such as managing email/social media/websites and other admin work can pile up quickly. That’s why I’m here to offer personalized services to reduce the work clutter in your life.

What the heck is a ‘tck’?

TCK stands for “Third Culture Kid”. According to Wikipedia, “Third culture kids are persons raised in a culture other than their parents’ or the culture of the country named on their passport for a significant part of their early development years. They are exposed to a greater variety of cultural influences.” I chose this moniker because it fits my identity as a biracial person raised in two wildly different countries, amalgamating them into a third, combined culture. This, mixed in with my love of travel, is what came to me choosing “travelingtck”.

Why should we work together?

I enjoy working with a variety of clients. That being said, I do specialize in working with people/persons who have interests in traveling (whether for leisure or work).

The reason you should work with me is because I have global experience and will work with you to help achieve your individual work needs. My promise to you is that I will keep learning, consulting and implementing new and efficient ways to help be the best virtual assistant I can be. I will invest my time and hard work ethic into the services I provide for you.

When it comes to planning trips I want to be able to save you time, money and stress by helping you plan for trips and vacations. In terms of relocation, as someone who has lived on a variety of continents and countries, I understand the frustration involved with traveling and relocating. From finding housing, to paying your internet bill overseas to finding a suitable school for your children, these things are all things that need careful consideration when you make your big move. Let me help you stress less by helping you with this big decision so you can focus more on your family and your transition.

I can’t wait to work with you 🙂
