I am a native speaker of Russian and English who grew up in the United States. My academic background is in history and political science, which remain my biggest passions. My professional career took me into the customer service field, where I held supervisory positions in call centers and other customer-facing roles in a variety of industries from logistics to insurance and technology, ultimately transitioning into sales and marketing. I am currently completing my studies in the Linguistics Masters program at the University of Verona, Italy.
My translation experience began at the age of 16 as a volunteer translator for several non-profit organizations, which gave me a solid grounding in both written and oral translation. Throughout my later career I continued to do freelance translation of various documents, including brochures, contracts and technical documentation.
