I am a native speaker of English with Spanish native level fluency. I was raised in a bilingual household and I studied both languages in a formal setting.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish, studied translation and interpretation, and taught Spanish and English as a Second Language to both young students and adults. I hold a Washington State certification.

Currently offer language services in English and Spanish (translation, interpreting, writing, training, and language tutoring). Available for consultancy, training, and speaking engagements.

With more than 14 years in the field, I have served as an interpreter for law enforcement agencies, translation agencies, as well as various medical and educational institutions, small businesses, and multinational corporations.

My writing experience in both English and Spanish includes: marketing and sales, press releases, web content, radio scripts, curriculum, training manuals, short stories, and poetry.

TRANSLATION EXPERIENCE Fields and Industries: clinical trials, pharmaceuticals, health care, marketing and communications, market research, hospitality/catering, travel & tourism, corporate communications, health and beauty, viticulture (wine production, product labeling, wine tourism) journalism, fashion, culinary, nutrition, poetry and children's literature, medical, health-care, consumer electronics, real estate, house and garden, consumer products, furniture, banking, government, general law, general business and commerce, politics, current events, pedagogy.

TYPES OF DOCUMENTS / TEXTS: media releases, press kits, websites, online media, product brochures and specifications, software strings, catalogs, user manuals, user guides, contracts, business plans, corporate, real estate documents, communications, market research surveys, menus, recipes, food preparation manuals, articles for trade magazines, articles of incorporation, business contracts, real estate documents, personal documents, product labeling, pharmaceutical labeling, physician reports, medical history files, professional journal articles, medical journal articles, ICF's, clinical trial protocols, patient confidentiality agreements, advanced directives, EOC’s, patient letters, and medical reports for hospitals and healthcare insurance companies; corporate handbooks, training manuals, and curriculum; web content.

PERSONAL INTERESTS: I enjoy healthy pecto-vegetarian cooking and staying fit both physically and mentally, which is why, when I'm not translating I make time to enjoy the outdoors during my jogs or devour a good detective novel or historical fiction. Classical theater and photography outings with my film camera also play a part in fueling my soul and keeping my mind fine tuned for my translation work.
