Turn language into an asset,
not an obstacle.

Transforming your Spanish and Portuguese texts into English with precision, clarity, and consistency


I am a professional translator of Spanish and Portuguese into English, my native language. I am certified by the American Translators Association (ATA) in both language pairs. I also provide editing services.

I specialize in publication-quality translations in the fields of foreign aid and advocacy, encompassing international development, humanitarian disasters, human rights, democracy, and other issues. I also translate legal documents as well as official documents (transcripts, diplomas, birth certificates, etc.). My pro bono work includes translation of Kiva microloans.

I hold master’s degrees in international development and political science as well as a Certificate in Translation. My linguistic training is complemented by several years of professional experience in international affairs.

I look forward to connecting with you and exploring how we can partner together in your work.
