I was born in France of American parents, and have always lived in France, but have travelled extensively around the world! I have double citizenship.
I have been translating for 24 years now, starting within my father's publishing house 'Dynamots', youth literature. Moved on from there to family related publications, then did a lot of consecutive interpreting for various conference speakers. I really enjoy that: it is so exciting to be filled with the speaker's energy and for a moment be his voice to French-speaking people or simply meet the challenge of communicating his words with accuracy.
For 10 years now I have been working in the humanitarian sector for various major NGO's, and discovered that is really where my heart is! Knowing I can be useful, a little tear drop facing the developing countries huge needs, using my skills as a tool to contribute to a worldwide effort, just makes my life more meaningful.
I am passionate about my work and always open to new challenges, as I have a lot of fields of interest.
To translate is sometimes to be a voice where there is none.
