Hello! I am a Spanish-to-English translator, editor, and proofreader. I am passionate about languages, community building, and developing multilingual spaces. I earned a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) and an M.A. in Latin American Studies from Tulane University. I spent 8 years working in education and 15 years volunteering with local community organizations where I assisted with translation and interpretation.
In 2020, I decided to become a freelance translator. I completed the Professional Certificate in Translation & Interpretation (Spanish/English) from UC San Diego Extension in 2022. I am a member of the American Translators Association (ATA). In addition, I currently volunteer as a blog master and editor for the ATA’s The Savvy Newcomer blog.
Originally from Chicago, IL, I have studied in Cuernavaca, Mexico, and lived in Madrid, Spain. I currently live in Houston, TX, with my partner and two-year-old daughter. When I am not translating, you can find me reading, playing soccer, and enjoying the outdoors.
