Bio
I have a First Class BSc (Hons) degree in European Business Management and Spanish and have used my translation skills in several firms I have worked for since 1991 (both in London and Madrid).

I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and have passed the Diploma in Translation (Spanish to English), having sat the General, Business and Social Science papers. I am also a Member of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting (ITI) and have completed the ITI's 2009 Orientation Course and 2012 Professional Support Group Course.

I currently combine my passion for Spanish with my interest and experience in the areas of finance, business, insurance, banking and management, although I also undertake translations in other fields including law, education, engineering and music. I have completed two financial translations for The London School of Economics.

I used my Spanish for many years working for a financial research/software company in London which specialised in Capital Markets. My most recent role at this firm was as Global Loans Research Manager, where accuracy and an eye for detail were an essential part of my job. Prior to this I worked for a Mexican bank in the City for two years and I also carried out temporary assignments for a Chilean mining firm.

Whilst in Spain I worked for an import and export firm and a computer services company in Madrid. In the latter I carried out translations for the HR Department and the Legal Department. My dissertation for my degree, which had to be translated into Spanish, was on Career Development.

More recently I worked for an independent financial adviser and passed my Certificate in Financial Administration through the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), which has given me a broader knowledge of the financial services industry.

In addition to translation, I tutor both individuals and groups privately in Spanish. I have taught adult evening classes at various levels at St Albans Girls' School.

I also teach piano to adults and children and, in my spare time, I enjoy attending singing lessons myself.
