Founded upon the idea that we all need help sometimes...

 

We created Located originally as the founders had both participated in study abroad programs as students.  We both realized that our trips and studies would not have been successful without the generosity and time of our host families, friends, and other resources that helped us every step of the way.

 

While that is great as a student, as an adult there seems to be less help, and less advice, so we wanted to create an organization that would create a framework to help people, personally and professional.  We started as a relocation company, and have grown into a coaching and consulting company.
