Qualifications and experience
Since relocating to Spain from the U.S. in 2004, I have been a language services provider in the field of health care and medicine. I am currently a langauge facilitator for a university hospital in Madrid, where I provide translation, interpretation, editing, and training services for both doctors and researchers as well as the hospital management team. I hold a PhD in English and wrote my dissertation on academic discourse.
