About me

I have over thirty-five years professional experience. To my Bachelor of Arts degree in French and Spanish from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, and my Master of Arts in Translation from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California, I have added certificate-level studies in business, language interpretation, photography, film, teaching and web design, among others. Educated in Vancouver, Quebec, California, France, Switzerland, Spain and Belgium, I have had a long career in translation and interpretation and have studied more than ten languages. Using my languages, I worked several years for a multi-governmental organization and then in publishing in Belgium followed by a number of years as a top administrator for a multinational manufacturing business in Hong Kong. I also worked in the Caribbean providing assistance to tourists in six languages. Business and leisure activities combined have taken me to six continents and over a hundred and twenty-five countries providing me with a detailed insight into numerous cultures and a deep understanding of international business practices. I have frequently taken an active part in cultural-bridging among Asians, Africans, North Americans, Central Americans, South Americans and Europeans.

I am an Associate Member of the STIBC (Society of Translators and Interpreters of British Columbia) as a French to English Translator as well as Associate Member (French to English and Spanish to English) of the American Translators Association (ATA). Moreover, I am an accredited French to English and Spanish to English translator on the freelance roster of the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Rome, Italy and an approved translator and interpreter (French and Spanish) with the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) Canada.
