About me
I was born in Estonia into a bilingual society and languages have always been an important part of my life. I studied English and Russian from the first grade and by the time I graduated from Tartu Medical Institute in 1989, I had a good control over three languages.

Year 1990 found me living in Europe and that is when I first started as a translator/interpreter. 4 years in Stockholm were followed by 6 years in Estonia, where I worked in several multilingual settings, and 14 years in USA. USA is where I have remained and Florida is currently my home state. Being part of an English speaking community has been very beneficial.

I have studied and worked in many different fields (medical, legal, financial) and am still continuing my education. Languages, like most everything else, are constantly morphing, changing and growing.

During the last few years I have specialized more on EMA projects and am very much at home with their guidelines, templates, terminology etc. Which does not mean that I would not welcome other challenges. I must admit though that I would prefer if these came from the medical field. I like the idea of excelling in one rather than dabbling in many. :)
