I am not currently available for translation work.
Post-Graduate Translation Certification from Georgia State University B.A. in French Language and Literature with minor in Spanish
I have been a professional, full-time French to English translator for over six years. I specialize in international business translation with a focus on the field of accounting/finance, international trade and import/export compliance.
I have helped countless multi-national French companies publish exceptional annual reports, registration documents, shareholders’ meeting notices, financial results press releases and chairman’s letters and reports in English.
Prior to becoming a freelance translator, I spent six years working for one of the top 100 largest ocean importers into the United States, first in sales, then managing inventory in the operations department, and lastly as trade compliance manager, where I was responsible for creating, implementing and maintaining the company’s import compliance and customs internal control program. I earned an import/export compliance management certification from the Professional Association of Import/Export Compliance Managers in 2010. In addition to being former Vice-President of the Georgia Chapter of the ATA (AAIT), I am also an active member of AAIT and a voting member of the ATA.
