PUERTO RICO’S MOST POWERFUL BUSINESS WOMEN
Lynn Stravecky helps newcomers adjust to life in PR
It was her own personal experience moving to Puerto Rico that convinced Lynn Stravecky
“there was a missing link in the relocation process.”
As a Psychotherapist, Stravecky already had the tools she needed to offer professional counseling. But, she took her specialization a step further and went to the U.S. Mainland to study and become a Certified Cultural Trainer.
Today, the Florida International University graduate believes establishing her own relocation counseling and consulting business has been her greatest professional accomplishment thus far.
“Starting my own business and opening a private practice has offered me diversity, a great challenge and the ability to help others,” said Stravecky. “Each case has different issues and I have the opportunity to work with people from all over the world. Helping them to work on their life challenges and appreciate their experience in Puerto Rico is something I am grateful to do on a daily basis.”
Stravecky, who has helped hundreds of individuals and families on assignment adjust to life on the Island, offers schools, corporations and private institutions; workshops and motivational talks related to relationships, relocation, adaptation, culture shock and self-improvement. Her services are provided English only and her clients are usually North Americans relocating to Puerto Rico. Lynn believes that cultural training is the most crucial part of a relocation assignment. One of her primary goals is to be an advocate for families and companies so that all involved reach the goal of happiness and success during the relocation process.
Besides her counseling and training services, Stravecky is preparing to publish her first book about her experience of relocating to Puerto Rico. She is also in the process of developing couples retreats and workshops in English.
