I was born in Estonia into a bilingual society and languages have continued to be an important part of my life. I studied English and Russian from the first grade and by the time I graduated from Tartu Medical School 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 now 20 years in USA. USA is where I have remained, Florida is currently my home state and Surfside's where I live. 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. In 2007 I began specializing 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. :)
