I have been writing for over 35 years --essays, articles, technical manuals, and I am author of Expanding Horizons, A Journey to Becoming A Skilled Language Interpreter available on Barnes and Noble. My background is in Human Services, Social Work, Education, and language interpreting. My forte is team building and I have access to multiple consultants with a wide range of expertise. Our focus is on assisting non-profit 501(c)(3) agencies with corporatizing their operations through staff development, program assessment and evaluation, and grant writing and lobbying.

I offer proofreading and editing of articles, books, technical manuals and academic papers. This includes reviewing translation between English and Spanish for grammatical errors, content errors and cultural appropriateness. I also provide professional typing service using Microsoft Office. I also have some experience in writing copy for newspapers and product ads for marketing purposes. The focus of my services is to focus on detail and clarity. My background as a professional interpreter and interpreter trainer allows me to focus on appropriateness and cultural competence as it relates to the multiple Spanish-language groups and dialects.
