Ellie Dunham is a graduate of Wellesley College, with a Masters Degree from the University of Leicester (UK). She is an experienced writer, comfortable and at ease with marketing and promotion, networking, social media, and blogging. Her entertaining blog, Expateek [expateek.blogspot.com] chronicled her adventures overseas in England, South Africa, and Poland from 2005-2011.
True to her personal vision, she has lived life as a world traveller, an experienced relocator (14 household moves in 30 years), and an adapted extrovert. Ellie has lived through stressful events that might have made others quake and fail. From surviving an armed gang robbery and hostage scenario in Johannesburg, to moving to Poland without knowing a word of Polish, to relocating multiple times in the USA with four children, a husband, pets and a household full of goods, she has turned lemons into lemonade at almost every turn. Her deep experience of stress, and her understanding that things aren’t always easy, make her a valuable contributor to this book.
