I have over 18 years of experience in translation, preparation and editing of documents in the fields of international development, policy, advocacy and business. I translate into English from Russian and Italian. My clients include the Global Lives Project, the International Children’s Digital Library, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and diplomatic missions.

I hold a BA Degree in Political Science and International Relations and a MA Degree in Regional and Local Development Studies. I have also completed a postgraduate professional certification course in Translation and am fluent in English, Italian, Russian and Amharic.

I have worked in the field of development in challenging but personally and professionally satisfying positions with bilateral and international organisations. In my previous role as United Nations World Food Programme’s (WFP) Liaison Officer to the African Union and the Economic Commission for Africa, I represented the organisation in high-level international fora and negotiations, networked with key stakeholders and coordinated the preparation of the annual publication on WFP’s work in Africa. During my tenure as Programme Officer in the Austrian Development Cooperation, I managed the project portfolio, provided input to the formulation of policy frameworks for Gender and Democracy, Health and Food Security, edited the ‘Gender-Focused Project Document Preparation' training manual developed for NGOs working in Ethiopia and managed the bi-lateral Health and Food Security programmes. My work has enabled me to collaborate with communities at the grassroots level, NGOs, governments, UN Agencies and the African Union.

I have travelled extensively in Africa, Europe, North America, the Caribbean, Asia and the Pacific and have lived in several different countries.
