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 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 business 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) where I arrived in 2004. I am separated and the proud mother of two boys, 5 and 12. I am a US Citizen since April 2010.

I volunteer as a docent in the Early Childhood Curriculum program (ECC) at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the New Orleans Ballet Association (NOBA) and the Ballet Resource and Volunteer Organization (BRAVO) ="http:>="http:>
