Service Description

I have been translating Spanish-to-English and English-to-Spanish since 2003. When I was only nineteen years old, I completed a translation project for the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization of Argentina. I have completed many projects since then, which have included both personal and technical documents. I have a bachelor's degree in Spanish from John Carroll University and a Master's degree in Latin American Studies from Ohio University. I am currently seeking a PhD in Latin American History at the University of Houston. I also have experience teaching both Spanish and English as foreign languages.
