Service Description

I hold a 1st Class MA (Hons) in English and French from the University of Edinburgh and a MA (with Merit) in Interpreting and Translation Studies from the University of Leeds.

In addition to the high standard of fluency, clarity and grammatical accuracy demanded by these academic qualifications I have 10 years of experience producing, proof reading and editing educational materials, educational curriculum, travel writing and translations.

In particular I edited the curriculum for the new translation and interpreting program at City University of New York and have taught (including online) at the University of Minnesota since 2006. My travel writing has been selected for publications including the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Silent Sports magazine. I also co-founded and edited Nomad travel magazine.
