About Me

I graduated my MA in Translation in 2013 from the University of the West of England with Distinction, and prior to this obtained a 1st BSc Dual Hons in Forensic Science and French from Keele University. I am a Member (MCIL) of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and an Associate member (AITI) of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting.

From 2013 to 2020 I worked full-time in translation project management and leadership specialising in life sciences, including for two of the top five global LSPs. For this reason, I primarily specialise in all aspects of life sciences, pharma, medical devices & healthcare and have a lot of experience working with major clients in this sector. However, I have strong interest and personal experience in other fields as well, such as non-profit, tourism, sustainability, fashion & craft, so I am also interested in projects for these areas.
