ABOUT ME

I am a freelance Spanish and French into English translator with six years of translation experience. My lifelong fascination with languages—on top of my native US English, I have spoken Spanish since early childhood and French since high school—led me to pursue a B.A. in Spanish and French, and later a Master in Translation, focusing on the Spanish>English language pair. I am currently certified by the American Translators Association in both Spanish>English and French>English translation.

In addition to my studies, I have extensive experience studying, living and traveling in both Spanish- and French-speaking countries. I spent two semesters abroad in Paris and Buenos Aires, completed internships at both French and Argentinean organizations, and taught English at a French high school for one year.

I also previously worked as a project coordinator at a translation agency, which helped to familiarize me with both sides of the translation industry.
