About me

After graduating with a BA (Hons) in French and Italian from the University of Manchester, I lived and worked in Italy for over 8 years. As a result, I have an excellent understanding of the nuances of the Italian language and a deep understanding of the culture. I fell in love with Italy when I was living in the little town of Solarolo in Emilia-Romagna, working as a volunteer in the local community.

I moved to Milan in 2007, where I worked as an assistant to the technical director at a company specialising in the research and development of in-vitro medical devices. Then, with this experience behind me, I embarked on a career in translation. After gaining a postgraduate diploma in technical translation (medicine and pharmacology), I worked in-house at two separate translation agencies before returning to the UK and setting up my own translation business in late 2016.

I now live in the picture-postcard seaside town of Clevedon, just a stone’s throw away from the bustling city of Bristol with its thriving art scene and independent spirit. I’m learning Polish and I enjoy cooking, playing the piano, travelling and being outdoors.

I cherish the value of networking and ongoing CPD. I am therefore an Associate member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI), as well as an active member of the ITI’s Western Regional Group and French, Italian and Medical networks.
