Hola! I am Michelle, the founder and CEO of Afro Expats. As an expat mentor, travel insider, travel curator, and relocation consultant with a background in management, customer service, public relations and entrepreneurship, I help people confidently navigate their visits as well as temporary or permanent moves to San Miguel de Allende. In a nutshell, if you are interested in shaking things up but you are not sure how to make your transition into international living or long-term travel easier, I’m here to help!


Let me share more... 


Over the last 25+ years I have been to more than 33 countries. In 2018 I moved to Mexico full time! I guess you can say I have a passion for other cultures and seeing the world, however, as easy as it is to say I love to travel and live abroad, in reality I could not have managed each transition without extensive research and help from other travelers in the area. Something I learned years ago is that seeking the guidance of others who know what they are doing is KEY to leaving the feelings of overwhelm behind. 


I know exactly what it takes to move or travel to Mexico - more specifically San Miguel de Allende. So, stick with me because you’re going to like how simple this process can be! I hope with Afro Expats you find the encouragement and clarity to leave the U.S. and pursue the new home you dream of establishing in Mexico!

The time has come for me to make it happen. When I started my research, I wasn’t quite sure where in Mexico I wanted to live. I knew what I liked, so that sent me to several websites searching. I came across Michelle’s site. Just by reading Michelle’s webpage, I knew San Miguel De Allende was the place for us. 


When I had my first conversation with Michelle, it was like a breath of fresh air, and every conversation thereafter has been the same experience. Michelle walked me through every step and what to expect when making the move abroad. I  have a school-age child, and it is a bonus that Michelle and I have that in common because she is guiding me through getting my son situated with school and activities. More importantly, I love her down-to-earth spirit and how relatable she is. I would say that it’s not easy to pick up and move aboard, but being able to work with Michelle to help guide us through the process is priceless. I am still in my moving phase and will arrive in San Miguel shortly, but I plan to still consulate with Michelle even after we arrive.
