Your Schefflera was acclimated to your former residence. I believe it is reacting to a change in its environment. That could be a change in light or in soil moisture. Try to duplicate as much as possible the light that it received in NC. It is also important to allow the soil to reach the same level of dryness as it did before you moved, although it may take longer to reach that level of dryness.
If you repotted after the move, that is also contributing to the problem.
It is important to find an appropriate location for your plant and keep it there. If it is constantly moved, then it will constantly face the stress of acclimating.
Avoid all fertilizers until your plant has fully recovered and is growing vigorously.
