I am a Korean-American U.S. citizen living in Seattle, USA with a passion and knack for languages. I am 34 years-old (as of 2014), and immigrated to America when I was 2. Despite leaving Korea at such a tender age, my fluency in the Korean language continued to develop while living in Seattle. My first experiences of interpreting and translating were for my parents who were non-native speakers of English. This extended to helping my Korean-speaking parents and English-speaking siblings understand each other, then eventually, to communicating with business professionals related to my parents' line of work. I attended a private school from grade school to high school, obtaining a rigorous English language and literature-based background. In 2002, I graduated from the University of Washington, Seattle, with a B.A. in English. My English language skills were further honed and sharpened by attending law school at Willamette University in Oregon. I have many years of experience translating and interpreting, including a few years of professional-level experience through private tutoring of business professionals; working at a pro bono legal clinic serving purely Korean-speaking clients; working at law firms with Korean clients; and translation experiences ranging from simple translations of brochures, college admissions essays, graduate-level essays and theses, to business and legal contracts. My speaking fluency and authenticity of sound is on par with native Korean speakers; I have no accents in either language. I am currently writing a novel in collaboration with my husband.

저는 미국 시애틀에 살고있고 언어에 대한 많은 열정과 재주를 가지고 있는 한국계 미국인입니다. 현제 나이는 34살 (2014년 기준)이고 미국에는 2살때 이민을 왔습니다. 어린 나이에 한국을 떠나 왔음에도 불구하고, 시애틀에 살면서 한국말을 계속 발전시킬 수 있었습니다. 제 첫번째 번역과 통역의 경험은 미국말이 모국어가 아닌 저의 부모님을 위에서 였습니다. 이후로도 한국말을 하시는 부모님과 영어를 쓰는 형제 자매가 서로 이해하는데 돕도록 하고, 또한 저희 부모님이 전문적 일을 위해 의사소통을 하는데에도 돕게 되었습니다. 저는 초등학교부터 고등학교까지 사립학교를 다녔고, 많은 영어와 문학에 대한 배경을 지닐 수 있게 되었습니다. 2002년도에는 영어 전공으로 시애틀에 있는 워싱턴 대학을 졸업하였고, 저의 영어 기술은 오래곤 주에 있는 윌라멧 법대를 다니면서 더욱 가다듬어 졌습니다. 저는 전문인들에게 개인 과외를 포함해서 번역과 통역에 다년간의 경험이 있으며 간단한 안내책자 번역부터 시작해, 대학입시 에세이, 대학원 수준의 에세이, 사업과 법에 관련 계약에 이르기까지 다양한 방면으로 경험이 풍부합니다. 제 한국말의 유창함과 정확성은 한국말 원어민 수준이고 한국말과 영어 두 언어 모두 아무 억양 없이 말할 수 있습니다. 현제는 남편과 함께 소설을 쓰고 있습니다.
