A lover of word flows and cultural meaning, I have translated for over 15 years. Raised in British Columbia, Canada, I spent years moving around the globe until I found my way to Lima, Perú where made my life for almost 20 years with short interludes in Quito, Bogotá and Guatemala City. I am currently based in Western Canada in a small desert city where two rivers meet - Tk'emlups (Kamloops).

Currently focussing on short projects, I have a diverse background in administration relating to regional government, health research, international education, property development and human rights. Clients have included legal firms, non profit organizations and private firms. Translation projects have covered websites, grant proposals, environmental assessments, newsletters, marketing materials, medical reports, subtitling and and audio transcriptions.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Latin American Studies & Anthropology from Simon Fraser University,  am a Cambridge CELTA certified ESL Teacher and have completed continuing education courses in Spanish Translation through the University of British Columbia.
