Quenby Wilcox is the Founder of Global Expats, which assists expat families, targeting the homemaker and expat mom. She moved abroad for the first time in 1977 to live in England as a Third Culture Kid (TCK); to Paris in 1987 as a student; and in 1989 until 2008 she was an expat, trailing spouse, living in Paris, Madrid, Brussels, Paris, Bogotá and again Madrid. In 2009, due to a high-conflict divorce in Spain, she returned to Washington, DC seeking assistance from the U.S. government, as she fought for her and her children’s rights in Spanish family courts. Her case is now headed to international courts against Spain for human rights violations.

In addition to Global Expats she is Founder of Safe Child International, whose mission is to promote and defend the rights of victims of domestic violence, and publishes a monthly newsletter Family Courts in Crisis.   Her blogs can be found on the following:

Quenby  Wilcox - Having It All

Having It All

The phenomenon of the dual-career family is a growing reality in societies around the world, and as a consequence women (and men) are increasingly focusing their time and energy on work-life balance and family life. In her blog on Womenalia, ‘Having it All’, Quenby will explore the realities of women who have ‘opted-out’ of the workforce for over the past decades, the challenges they face in workplace re-insertion, as well as their efforts to re-invent themselves after children ‘leave the nest’.
