About me
With a background in diplomacy, I enjoy translations in a wide variety of fields including education and the social sciences in an international context.

I currently work as a freelance translator and French tutor in Calgary, the proud home of the Calgary Stampede. I am a certified member of the Association of Translators and Interpreters of Alberta (ATIA) and hold a PhD in Migration and Diaspora Studies.

I started off my professional translation career as a part of my duties at UNEP in 2000 and at the CARICOM Secretariat from 2001-2004. However, it was while working at the World Bank from 2005-2008 as a full-time translator that I was mentored by senior translators (with all of the humbling that entails!)

I've been freelancing ever since and work from French and Spanish into English, with a very strong preference for French.

I also enjoy working from Jamaican Patois (a.k.a Patwa or Jamaican Creole) into English, particularly for law enforcement and anthropologists.

I look forward to receiving even more language requests from all corners of the earth in future!
