About Robin Pascoe

Traveling spouses, international Human Resource practitioners, relocation specialists, and international school communities worldwide applaud her pragmatic but sensitive approach to the joys and challenges of families and global relocation. She is deeply committed to helping families make the most of the sometimes challenging privilege of living, working, and raising a family abroad.

As the Expat Expert, Robin is well known both at home and abroad for her inspirational and informative articles, corporate presentations, and best-selling books. Since 1998, her popular website has served as an international meeting place, discussion group, and source of advice and information for hundreds of thousands of expats world-wide.

Robin’s reputation as a funny, engaging and inspirational speaker was earned as a former diplomatic spouse (in postings to Bangkok, Taipei, Beijing and Seoul); raising two third culture kids, and by traveling globally from her home base in Vancouver, Canada. Robin has now spoken in over twenty countries, invited by corporate groups from Shanghai to Johannesburg to educate business about the needs of the expatriate family. Robin has become the go-to expert for corporations interested in understanding the needs of expats and their families and making recommendations for family-friendly relocation policies.

Robin’s profession as a journalist makes her ideally suited to reporting on the trends in expatriate experience. She writes regularly for expatriate newspapers, magazines and web sites. She has also been interviewed in numerous international publications including The Washington Post, The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, Working Mother Magazine, Utne Reader, CNN, and others.

The author of five widely-used books on global living, Robin’s latest book, “Raising Global Nomads: Parenting Abroad in an On-Demand World” was released in September 2006.
