About me

I have a PhD in Spanish Language and Literature and have lived and studied in Spain and Mexico. As a professor I have taught Hispanic literature classes as well as upper division language, grammar and composition/conversation courses for Spanish majors. I developed and implemented a program of Spanish language study specifically designed for medical professionals which I taught at hospitals in Arizona and Idaho.

I have been translating for over 35 years. My earliest accomplishments were a consequence of my association with the university community, usually via referrals, and included projects of varying genre, complexity and magnitude. Since 2009, I have been working for, an online marketplace that provides multilingual editing, translation, and graphic design services. I currently have an Elite rating as a translator in this company and have completed translation projects that include but are not limited to:
• College theses and scholarly reviews
• Literary critiques
• Medical reports
• Insurance claims
• Legal documents and certificates
• Employee benefit manuals
• Travel and leisure advertising materials.

I joined in 2012 to take advantage of their network of services and resources while doing private freelance translation and working for that other on-line translation company. In 2014, I decided to also pursue translation assignments posted on the Web site and was accepted into the ProZ.Com Certified PRO Network of translators in April, 2015. Shortly thereafter I was accepted into Translators without borders.
