I was born in France but moved to Australia at a very young age. I have maintained my French language skills and cultural knowledge through family, social groups and media (TV, radio, music & cinema). 

 

I have experience working as a team member and also leading a small team of translators to carry out a few translation projects. I understand the importance of communication, team dynamics and collaborative tools in order to achieve successful outcomes.

 

I am always ready for new challenges and opportunities and make sure that my skills are kept up-to-date by undergoing continuous professional development. You have in front of you someone who is very passionate about languages and her work!
