Welcome to, a community of travelers, expats, and students who are relaunching themselves into a life they love after being abroad.

My name is Cate, and you can read more about me here.

SPS is based on 3 ideas:

  1. Re-entry is a gift. But it doesn’t open itself.
  2. Re-entry isn’t about readjusting to being back home. It’s about relaunching yourself into your next great thing. Every time you go “home.”
  3. We learn, grow, and relaunch better together than alone.

It doesn’t matter how long ago you were abroad; re-entry lasts a lifetime and it’s never too late to relaunch yourself into your next great thing. I’ve done it many times!

Re-entry is a state of mind, not a period of time.

At SPS you’ll find practical advice and inspiration to guide you through returning home from abroad and relaunching yourself into your next great thing!

Want to go abroad again?
Thinking about starting a business?
Considering a global career?
Want to connect with others who are going through what you’re going through?

I’ve got you covered…
