In fact many of my English-speaking friends are very impressed by the high quality of her work performed within a short time frame. I highly recommend her for her outstanding professionalism and efficiency.” - Denis Marx, President of Anak France and Past President of Anak Switzerland.

Consecutive Interpretation

I can provide Consecutive Interpreting and Liaison Interpreting for your business meetings between French and English and between Spanish and English. I have interpreted at meetings among business partners and government Ministers/Presidents for several years.

I also interpret in health care settings. My very first interpreting experience was in fact as a volunteer for American doctors and dentists on a medical mission in Honduras in 1983! My most memorable assignment was interpreting during the 25-hour delivery of a baby girl by a 16-year-old refugee from El Salvador in Vancouver. I currently work as a contractor interpreter for the Provincial Language Service of the Provincial Health Services Authority of British Columbia, as well as with Interpretation & Translation Services (ITS), which is part of Abbotsford Community Services. I work with French/English and Spanish/English for both entities.

For more insight into this profession, I recommend reading Martina Scholtens, MD's book “Your Heart is the Size of your Fist.” For ten years, Martina worked as a family physician in a clinic in Vancouver, Canada. Many of her patients were refugees, newcomers to Canada and non-English speakers, and consequently often required the help of health care interpreters. Many of the patients I interpret for are refugees.

Language Teaching

I teach English, French and Spanish. I have taught French at college (university) level, Spanish for Advanced Placement (AP) tests (for entry into Ivy League Schools in the USA), and English as a Second Language from beginners to advanced (Cambridge levels A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1 as well as YLE and KET, PET and IELTS exam preparation). I have taught one-on-one, in school classrooms and in business settings. I am currently available for short-term teaching contracts. Long-term contracts are negotiable. I can either move to where you are if you are a larger audience, or we can schedule regular language teaching sessions over Skype.
