Bio
I specialize in medical and scientific translations. I have worked full time as a freelance medical translator since 2007, mainly for pharmaceutical companies and specialized translation agencies. I have been a certified member of the American Translators' Association since 2009.

As a medical doctor, I have professional experience in public health, health management, clinical practice, and clinical and epidemiological research. I am also a certified medical transcriptionist, with freelance experience working for companies based in the U.S, and I also have experience teaching English as a second language, English as a foreign language (mainly intermediate to advanced), and English for health professionals.

My studies include a professional doctorate in general medicine, several investigation courses, including a course on epidemiological research in Japan, and partial completion of the obstetrics and gynecology residency program. I have also had a long-term relationship with language studies, most of which are still (and will always be) ongoing. Hence, apart from my native language, Spanish, I also speak English as a second language, Italian, French, Norwegian and a little Japanese. Furthermore, I am also currently studying Fine Arts, emphasizing in Art History and Sculpting.
