About Me

Karla Fraser - Founder, CEO, Expat Career Specialist, Higher Education Consultant

About Karla Fraser and Roseapple Global, LLC

My expatriate (expat) life began 15 years ago when I merged my passion for global adventures and my international affairs background. My professional career includes twenty (20) years in higher education, of which ten (10) have been international. I also have two (2) years of experience in corporate conference planning.

My exciting life and expat story includes being a Third Culture Kid (TCK) who has lived in seven (7) countries, including the USA. Can you take a guess on the others? Travelling through my career and being a digital business entrepreneur has facilitated me working in six (6) countries, while long-term visiting three others and traveling to 50+ others for tourism, cultural exploration, and life enrichment.

My life has been as an adventure, especially after I transitioned into international higher education in 2007 with my first position in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Since then, I have lived and loved my expat life with a two-year return stateside. Being an expat has brought me many great, diverse experiences and it has fueled my passions: writing and wellness.

As persons learned of my adventures and experiences, I found myself coaching and guiding a close friend to obtain a student affairs position in Australia coming from the USA. I spent countless hours advising or coaching others over dinner, at conferences, or during a phone call about their anticipated journey. It was the soft beginning of what you now know as Roseapple Global's Expat Career Coaching Services.

These opportunities were genuinely fulfilling. As a result of my life experiences, I want to help others achieve their goal of expat living and higher education organizations deliver their best services to students.

Finally in 2019, Roseapple Global, LLC was launched: a boutique firm specializing in expat career coaching for aspiring expatriates and consulting for higher organizations. 

We recognize the growing global need for experts and expertise in higher education and other career fields in established or emerging nations. Our objectives are to:
