Expat himself – Dr. Wells’ insight is a tremendous guide

The information Dr. Wells provides is very helpful and informative. Being an expat himself, his firsthand experience and knowledge is super beneficial. I look forward to hearing more from him! I have known Dr. Wells for many years and have seen and heard what roadblocks and challenges he has had (and continues to have) to jump over, go through and stumble through!! Therefore, his insight is a tremendous guide for future expats.
