I've worked on translations since 2011. I completed the University of California, San Diego Extension's  Specialized Certificate in Translation Program where I was able to combine my translation experience with the excellent translation theory, methodology and understanding that this professional program provides.

I have been in education since 1981. My experience in education gives me the necessary background and insight to work on assignments relating to education, schools, and universities. My Reading Specialist credential and undergraduate background in Spanish literature gives me the necessary background to work with children's literature and instructional reading materials. My experience as an amateur family genealogist over the years has exposed me to different types of genealogically related documents, handwritten and in print, domestic and foreign, from birth certificates to land deeds.

My family originates from Macotera, Salamanca, Spain. I've spoken Spanish since I was a child, majored in Spanish literature in university and lived in Spain as an adult.
