Bio


A native French and English speaker, I have experience with whisper and simultaneous interpretation from French<English and English>French at side events to the United Nation's 62nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women, and at CASA Maryland, a center helping refugees learn their rights in the US. Other interpreting experience includes assisting forensic physical examination for West African asylum case, and doing interpreting assignments for Dynamics Multilingual in NYC. 

I also have experience in translations (French < English) ranging from speeches by African human rights leaders at UN side events, to scholars presenting on social revolutions in postcolonial Africa, to a series of children's books published by Congolese president Denis Sassou Nguesso.e experience in translations (French < English) ranging from speeches by African human rights leaders at UN side events, to scholars presenting on social revolutions in postcolonial Africa, to a series of children's books published by Congolese president Denis Sassou Nguesso.

I hold a Bachelor degree in French Literature with honors from Johns Hopkins University, as well as a Bachelor in Flute Performance from Peabody Institute. I am comfortable working on large event productions and performing under duress, because of my background as a musician, and possess the interpersonal skills that are necessary to provide a smooth and professional service. My areas of specialty are human rights issues, anthropology, music, arts, literature, society, and nature. I would love to work with you to make your project/presentation a success!
