Native English speaker with native fluency in Spanish and advanced level Portuguese. I studied translation and interpretation at Hunter College in New York City where I was born and raised. While living in New York, I had the opportunity to immerse myself in Latin American culture and languages living with non-English speaking roommates for over seven years. Prior to that, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Brazil and Spain, where I resided for one year. I am currently studying Arabic at DePaul University in Chicago and I am actively seeking graduate programs in translation and linguistics. I started working on special transcription and translation projects with the founders of VerbalizeIt in 2012 when their start up was known as PalmLing. Since then I have held several language related positions, including teaching ESL online. copy editing and translation. I am passionate about language, travel, culture and food, as well as interpersonal communications, history and writing.
