I am an experienced freelance translator providing professional German to English translation services for clients around the world since 2010.

As an American-born citizen and lifelong student of the German language, I am singularly positioned to bring a deep understanding of both cultures and language to all of my work. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in German studies, as well as a Masters of Arts in Language and Cultural Studies from a German University. I also hold an Associate of Applied Science in Design Graphics Engineering Technology, granting me the competency to thoroughly comprehend the nuances of the subject matter I am translating.

My time spent in this rigorous academic environment has instilled in me a detailed and research-based approach to finding creative and highly effective ways to process and present information. I am passionate about my work as a translator because it allows me to share this love of cross-cultural communication with my dedicated and hard-working clients as they adapt their message to reach an ever-globalizing market.
