I was born and educated in Italy, with continuing educational and professional experience in the United States. I have used my bilingual skills across many profesional areas of expertise (translation and interpretation). I received my bachelor's degree in Management in Chicago, Illinois. My educational backgruond also includes completion of an associates' degree in Radiological Technology and a full certification in Culinary Arts.
My professional experience has taken me down numerous career paths where I have been able to build upon my bilingual linguistic capabilities. My five year position as a Radiological Technologist within the medical community offered me the opportunity to use my translation skills to work with doctor-patient communication. My experience as a chef and caterer within the food service industry gave me the opportunity to work with recipe translation. I am presently managing my own general contracting business-Accurate Builders,Inc. since 1990. My present position often requires English-Italian translation and interpreting construction terms with my clients.
I remain actively involved within the Italian community both in the United States and in Italy. I return to Italy on a yearly basis for extended periods of time to remain connected to family, friend, culture and current events.
