Career Coaching Program for Moms on the Move

Moving around the country or across the globe can offer incredible opportunities in your career and life experiences, but how do you deal with what’s left behind, especially when you don’t know what’s ahead?

Whether it’s your job or your partner’s precipitating the move, both careers will be impacted. How quickly you adapt to the landscape, culture and skills will determine your success in the new location, especially when living abroad with a family.

This program is designed for ambitious women who want to maintain their sense of self and contribute meaningfully, rather than be derailed by moving.

Through this process, we will utilize your strengths to find your place in the market, and ensure that your career, network and relationships remain strong whether you are working abroad in California, Paris or Hong Kong.


There’s so many tasks to do, how can I make time to consider everything I need to be successful, let alone implement it all?


There’s so much to learn and I don’t know anyone here. How will I ever get up-to-speed, and make this place feel like home?

Off Course

How will my years of experience transfer to this new location? How can I make a name for myself in a new place?

Plan Creatively is led by Sara Madera.

After moving no less than nine times for a mix of her job, her husband’s, or because she chose a new path, Sara knows how to rebuild your career and community, while maintaining her family’s integrity and living abroad as an American.

After running organizations and departments for companies large and small across the globe, Sara decided to focus on the part of the job she liked the most – developing people.

A certified executive coach, a naturally good listener and a mother of two, Sara focuses on helping women redefine for themselves what it means to be a successful working mother no matter where they are working abroad- and making that vision a reality.

  • Five 80-minute sessions, one on one, virtually over Zoom based on your schedule, over a 2-3 month period.
