Bio
I was born in the Basque Country where I learned Basque and Spanish. I graduated in 2000 with a B.A in Basque language and Literature and again in 2003 with a Primary Education degree. I taught Basque language full time for 4 years (16 and older and all levels of Basque including the EGA exam) until I moved to the USA in 2003. In the USA I first taught Spanish at the University of Idaho through the USAC (University Studies Abroad Consortium) program and then I taught Basque at the Boiseko Ikastola Basque preschool. I received my M.A. in Spanish in 2006 and I have taught at Boise State University teaching all levels if Spanish and Basque culture workshops during the last 10 years. I have taught Basque language at the Basque museum from 2008 to 2013. I also become the first Basque language coordinator in the USA and Canada through NABO (The North american Basque Organization) during those years.

I have translated a 100 page-book from Spanish to Basque and several documents from English to Spanish and Basque as a volunteer. I have volunteer as an Interpreter with refugee families and also edited translations and translate improvised verses from Basque to English.
I currently work as a freelance translator for the Idaho Health and Welfare Services.
I learned Portuguese in the USA and Brazil in 2013 and I have traveled to Brazil for 3 summers.
I love languages, translating them, teaching them, traveling and meeting new people.
