American Citizens Abroad's June Podcast: Families in Global Transition's LaShell Tinder

LaShell (Shelly) Tinder, who is the American Citizens Abroad's June Podcast interview subject and today the treasurer of Families in Global Transition, knows a bit about being part of a family in the process of globally transitioning. 

According to her profile on the Families in Global Transition website, she was an "accompanying spouse" for 11 years, and "raised three TCKs" (Third Culture Kids), born in the U.S., Belgium and Venezuela...

LaShelle TinderTinder, pictured left, began her work in mobility helping accompanying spouses and partners as a career/transition coach before moving into relocation management for RMCs and corporations, and these days works as a "global mobility manager" for the North American operations of H&M, the Swedish retail group.

In the latest of the ACA's monthly podcasts, which it publishes on the second Tuesdasy of each month (and which had its debut today), Tinder discusses some of the issues U.S. citizens typically face when they move overseas, including "duty of care" issues facing dual-nationality couples, as well as how Covid-19 has been impacting American expats the past few months. 

As reported, the ACA launched its monthly podcast series last year.

The Rockville, Maryland-based American Citizens Abroad is a non-profit, non-partisan organization, and exists to help Americans who live overseas. It was founded in 1978 in Geneva, Switzerland, and moved its headquarters to the U.S. in 2012.
