Native language: English (born in USA). Second language: Spanish. I have lived in Spain for over 40 years, and studied Psychology in Spain. After my licentiate studies, I was granted a 4-year pre-doctoral scholarship in the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. I received my Ph.D. in 1994.

Ph.D. in Psychology, specialty: Clinical Psychology. About 8 years experience as a clinical psychologist. I have also prepared and taught several pre-doctoral courses on Stress Management.

Experience in translation/interpreting:

I worked for 6 years for The Spanish Journal of Psychology (Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Facultad de Psicología). My main task was to turn the articles we received into readable and correct English. I was also responsible for helping to edit the articles and to prepare the finished articles for the press.

As of 2002: freelance translator, specializing in Psychology texts (mainly Psychology articles, written in Spanish, to be presented for publication in journals that publish in English). I review most of the articles for for the journal Psicothema. I have translated articles for University professors from at least 20 Spanish universities, from the areas of Clinical Psychology, Social Psychology, Work Psychology, Developmental and Educational Psychology, Juridical Psychology, Sport Psychology, etc.; most of the Professors are returning clients. Some of the articles I translated were published in the following journals: International Journal of Clinical and Health Psychology, Journal of Adolescent Health, Journal of Vocational Behavior, Psicothema, Psychological Reports, Gerontologist, Journal of Pain, The International Journal of Psychology, Transplantation Proceedings, The Spanish Journal of Psychology, The Journal of Learning Disabilities, Current HIV Research, The Journal of Experimental Education, Research in Higher Education, American Journal of Orthopsychiatry, Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, Research on Ageing, Cognitive Therapy and Research, Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, European Journal of Psychology of Education, Learning Disability Quarterly, Journal of Clinical Psychology in Medical Settings, Journal of Sports Science and Medicine, Pain Management Nursing, Arte, Journal of Pediatric Health Care, Environment and Behavior, Research in Developmental Disabilities, Journal of Family Violence, Dementia, among others.

I have interpreted for visiting professors at several Psychology conferences, meetings, etc. (English to Spanish and Spanish to English).

One of my other main interests is taijiquan. I taught taijiquan for 10 years in Madrid. I have also acted as interpreter at several workshops of taijiquan (English to Spanish and vice versa). I have also recently taken up my other passion: horseback riding.
