My honours degree in Tourism Studies in my native UK was only the start of my international experience, as well as my academic life, as I continue to learn and improve with every step of my professional journey, which has included: Freelance translation, IT software and training sales, marketing for hotels and tour operators, sales promotion for FMCG brands, public relations and social media management, events management, radio production, English teaching, sports marketing, retail, sports events and competitions.

I have lived in Portuguese-speaking countries (Brazil and Portugal) for an accumulative total of around ten years, and we have now been living and working in Spain since 2009, and I still communicate in Portuguese on a daily basis.

Living, working and studying in language source countries for most of my adult life has equipped me with valuable experience and understanding of communication, culture and translation between these languages and my native English.

A dynamic, rich and varied career, in which translation, communication and copywriting have played a vital part, has led me to constantly update my skills and competencies, adapt to changing circumstances add a mature, global outlook to the services I provide.
