I am a U.S. native who has lived in Salzburg, Austria for over 20 years. I have over 25 years experience in writing, editing, and proofreading both in business and academic settings. I have been working as a free-lance translator since 1995. Early in my career, I worked as a marketing and public relations manager for non-profit organizations in the U.S. After moving to Austria, my focus changed from business to education. As an English teacher at an international boarding school, proofreading and editing became skills I developed over many years of mentoring my students. More recently, I have been doing pre-press proofreading for publishers in Central Europe in addition to German to English translation.
