I was born in Pamplona, Spain and raised in Panama City, Panama. I have worked as a Certified Public Translator for 18 years. I am registered as such in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Panama and in the Panamanian Association of Translators and Interpreters (APTI).

I recently became an Associate Member of the American Translators Association (ATA) and will be certified in the coming months.

I am also a Lawyer and Certified Mediator. I've worked in Panama with the Attorney General for the Public Administration and the international financial law firm Arias&Arias Consultores.

I've lived in Bologna, Italy 1997-2001, where I learned and mastered the Bolognese culture and Italian language. While in Bologna I worked mainly in the translation biznez and in several language schools as a Spanish and English teacher and Project Supervisor for the European Union Leonardo program.

Other cities where I've also lived for work and studies: San Jose, Costa Rica 1994-1995 (Master in Diplomacy & Foreign Affairs, Institute of Foreign Service); London, England 1982-1984 (family relocation when my father was appointed Ambassador to the UK).

At present I'm living in New Orleans, Louisiana (USA). I am married and the proud mother of a 4yr old boy. I am a US Citizen since April 2010.

I volunteer as a docent at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the New Orleans Ballet Association (NOBA) and the Ballet Resource and Volunteer Organization (BRAVO)

I like to work as a medical interpreter (consecutive) , write short stories & essays in English & Spanish, do guided tours (museum &city) in Spanish and English.

My translation prices are:

Documents $0.06/word
Legal/Technical $0.07/word
Rush Jobs $40/hour
Short stories/art reviews $0.05/word
Editorial/Proofread work $30/hour

Work as an interpreter is limited to a consecutive basis, prices are subject to location and duration of appointment.
