Professional Information

My current primary focus is legal and general Spanish interpretation: state court, depositions, immigration matters, workers' comp, and board meetings. I offer Spanish to English translation in legal and clinical trial documents. I am a native Canadian English speaker and am well-versed in localization to Canadian English for marketing and customer-facing materials and websites, as well as for linguistic validation for clinical trials. I received an MA in Spanish Translation and Interpretation from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey and have worked both as a translator and an interpreter over the last eight years.

Something You Should Know

I'm originally from Canada but have lived in California for over ten years. I've also lived in Spain, Germany, and Mexico. I love traveling, cycling, and animals.
