Organization, flexibility and problem solving. And then organization again.
What has been the trajectory of your career at TransPerfect?
I started as a project coordinator. Annually, I made my way to Project Manager and Senior Project Manager. In the last 1-2 years I’ve been able to incorporate a bit of my personal background into my work and focus on German language projects. As a result of a lot of hard work I am currently a client Language Lead for Germany and South Africa, and Executive Project Manager.
What is the most interesting project you have worked on?
During the Ebola outbreak in 2015 the Life Sciences division received translation requests for some of the first drugs that were starting to work against the disease. It reminded me how our work is relevant to people’s lives today, and can really make a difference.
What were you doing before working at TransPerfect?
I graduated from Tulane University with degrees in Art History and German Language. I went on to get a Masters Degree in Modern & Contemporary Art, and worked for some of the biggest names in the art world in London and New York. When an opportunity at TransPerfect came up, I decided to put my other degree to use and return to my linguistic roots.
