I have a Master's degree in Russian Translation from Kent State University, and I am currently working on my PhD in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching.

I am also teaching Russian as a foreign language at college level.

I'm very passionate about the work of a translator and interpreter and sincerely interested in each project I undertake. I enjoy both translating/interpreting and organizing translation projects. I am extremely responsible, very friendly, sociable, and a quick learner.

I mainly interpret at business meetings, negotiations, exhibitions, and fairs in the fields of technology, business, marketing, and mass media. I also have experience interpreting for patients at hospitals and clinics.

My translations are always accurate and fast. I have my translations double-verified before delivery to the client. I am sincerely committed to quality.

As part of my previous long-term collaboration with 2 leading PR agencies I regularly provided translations and interpreting services to such well-known companies as Discovery Networks, Viacom, Peugeot, Hyundai/Kia, ICQ, EFES Group, American Express, HTC, Vestel, Schwarzkopf and Samsung.

I take medical translations very seriously, so each one is proofread by a medical expert. I also organize the workflow for medical translations to/from other languages. As I've built an extensive base of medical translators and expert proofreaders, I always have the translations double-checked so as to guarantee highest quality.

I also give private English lessons (General, Business, all levels); I used to work as a language tutor at an Oil&Gas company, teaching small groups and individuals (levels from elementary to advanced; general and business English). Have devised study plans and teaching strategies that have proved to be efficient.
