Spanish: I was a Spanish teacher in New Mexico, I completed a MA in Spanish Translation and Localization Management from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, and I have done Spanish translation and interpretation work as a freelancer. Italian: I am a Certified Court Interpreter for the State of New York and interpreted an Italian divorce/domestic violence case in California. I use my language skills every day in my career in the localization (language services) industry. I worked at Art.com, an e-commerce company in Emeryville, CA and I currently work at SimulTrans, a language service provider in Mountain View, CA. I work closely with translators and though I no longer translate or interpret, I still use my language skills in every-day communications and linguistic QA.
