Born and raised in California, I now live in Barcelona, Spain. As I grew up in a multicultural home, my mother tongues are both English and Spanish. Furthermore, I learned Catalan as an early teen and it has become my daily language.
My passion for languages led me to study a degree in translation and interpreting at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Then, I combined my work with further specializations: a postgraduate degree in legal translation and two master's degrees, one in medical translation and another in audiovisual translation.
As well as over ten years' experience in the field of translation, I have worked in education for over fifteen years. I am an English lecturer at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya and have coordinated the English department. My career in education and coordination has granted me valuable organization, teamwork, and leadership experience, as well as decision-making and problem-solving skills.
