Bio
From an early age I regularly travelled between France and England for pleasure with family.  I later spent some time living in Quebec, Canada, after attending the University there for a few months.

I also spent a lot of time travelling around South America, particularly Argentina, visiting friends and then moved to Tenerife, Spain.

Being bilingual in both French and Spanish offered me many amazing work opportunities abroad and in the UK, and after having had a career as a Secondary School French/Spanish teacher in the UK, I chose to leave the profession 3 years ago and became a full time freelance translator.  This was in order to give me the freedom to travel to France and Spain to see friends and family as much as possible as well as to soak up their culture a little bit more on each visit.

I was translating for private clients before and throughout my career as a teacher.  Any translations such as legal translations which needed to be certified, I completed the translations then got them certified through my mother's translation business.

I absolutely love travelling and seeing new places and learning new cultures and I have a wide variety of hobbies including motorcycling/triking, handicrafts, playing musical instruments, animals, nature, fashion, cooking etc.

I am a hardworking, honest individual who is a perfectionist and I always receive good feedback from clients.  I always hit deadlines and fully understand the need of confidentiality in all work, not just legal work.  I take pride in my work and enjoy what I do.
