Debbie is passionate about providing the excellent service which Bowker Consulting prides itself on. She has many years of experience leading this team of Education Consultants. Debbie is widely respected in the industry for her knowledge and understanding of the impact of relocation on families, and is on the Executive Board of the Association of Relocation Professionals (ARP). She has a background in secondary Maths teaching and currently serves as a school governor for a local primary school. These skills and experiences provide her with a comprehensive educational knowledge of both past, current, and future education reforms and implications on relocating families.
Deborah offers calm reassurance and a wealth of knowledge and insight. She provides individually tailored research and advice, helping to manage client expectations and confidently navigate complex admissions processes, to secure the best possible outcomes. She also looks after families who are on International Assignments and provides specialist support with School Appeals and SEN.
Jane studied psychology at Somerville College, Oxford, and has a special interest in child development. She has taught in both state and Independent schools in the UK. Jane also spent five years in Kenya where she taught, and her children schooled, at International schools. This has given her valuable experience of ‘both sides’ of the relocation process.
Following on from a 21 year career in teaching, Heidi now puts her vast educational knowledge and experience to best use within the relocation industry. With a warm, friendly and empathetic approach, she successfully explains the different curricula and education systems and guides families through the decision making and application processes, in turn relieving the pressure they feel when relocating with children.
Originally from Germany, Katharina has lived in Australia, Holland, and the UK with her husband and sons. This gives her a first-hand appreciation of the challenges faced by families moving to a country where the culture, education system, and languages are very different.
