She was approached by Middle Point in August of last year, which came at what seems the right time because she was feeling like she needed a new challenge . Even though she had never been to the Netherlands before, curiosity won and she decided to take the step and move to the Netherlands. She now works as an ISL Engineer for Damen Naval.
Even though the housing market was tough, it seemed like good luck was on her side and found a place within 100m from the beach.
Her favorite thing about the Netherlands is the hospitality, and how quick people seem to help out when needed. After hearing that she was moving , her line manager didn’t hesitate to recruit people to help and next thing she knew, there were 15 people helping her move in.
Her advice for relocating is to surround yourself (with what?) that make you feel like home. Thanks to living in modern times you can find expat groups on Facebook that can provide you with help and advice. But most important: don’t be afraid of the unknown; things have a way of working out in the end! Oh, and surround yourself with items that make your new place YOUR home! This could be pictures, paintings, sculptures or other things that give you a feeling of home!
Fun fact about Lisa-Marie: she speaks fluent Slovenian since her parents decided to sign her up for a Slovenian school back in Austria!
