Having always had a passion for language and culture, I decided at a young age that I wanted to pursue a career in this industry. I studied for a BA in German and Spanish at Nottingham Trent University, graduating with a first-class degree, followed by an MA in Translation Studies where I consolidated my strengths and interests. I translate out of German, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, with medical and marketing texts being a particular favourite of mine. My role at AST also involves blog writing and preparing a weekly internal staff newsletter. In my free time, I enjoy walking my dog, going to the gym and, of course, travelling the world.
