Bio
My real specialty is human science, that is anything dealing with the human side of business be it marketing, management, insurance, educational, historical, political, economical, financial, psychological, cultural or dealing with alternative medicine, yoga, spirituality, literature, nutrition, tourism, art, etc. I have also done considerable (light) technical translations, dealing with machines, as in computers (SW manuals, some IT, automotive, product descriptions, etc.)

American born, US-educated, I have a US Bachelors degree and a French Studies Diploma from the Sorbonne.

From my professional beginnings in a college bookstore, on to writing promotional material for a college development office, words have always been my mainstay.

They escorted me to a literary agency, then on to an advertising agency and finally had me teaching English before setting up shop, with my French husband, in freelance translating and copywriting.

Since 1995, I have been translating, proofreading, rewriting and copywriting. I have collaborated with both private clients and agencies on technical matters, (SW manuals, product descriptions,) financial and insurance reports, business, marketing, and advertising projects as well as more prosaic endeavors dealing in tourism, culture, art, alternative medicine, spirituality, educational material and children's literature.

I love the vastness of words and the opportunities they have given me to sample and comprehend our humanness from many angles thanks to diversified subject matter.

Words are my professional tools, my friends, my brush and paint. Let me help you find the right words to get your ideas across effectively!
