Born to Spanish speaking parents in Latin America, I completed my primary and secondary education in two Spanish speaking countries before making the decision to pursue a higher education in the United States, where I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership and later an MBA. I worked for the University of Illinois in Chicago (UIC) for almost a decade translating and interpreting from English to Spanish and Spanish to English for a wide range of clients from all over Latin America. I worked on translations and interpretations for professionals, such as doctors, nurses, social workers, attorneys, school officials, therapists, managers, psychologists, government workers and numerous more. ? During my stay with UIC, I became the key person to go to when customized translation or interpretation was required. I am able to communicate effectively with fellow Spanish speaking individuals in their own dialect(s). After sever years of working in the Healthcare and Educational fields, I began a new journey transferring my knowledge to the banking world, where I focused on mortgage, and marketing, as well as other areas of banking where I could employ my bilingual skills. I am a member of the American Translators Association (ATA), and International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA) and have an outstanding record in the Spanish Translation and Interpretation field. My focus is ensuring that your communication needs are accurate, localized, and presented on time.

In the most silent hour of the night, I must write (name that reference, and you may win a prize, or maybe not). I will write just about anything. I prefer the creative genres, but if there is enough incentive, I would write your bread maker manual before your atria could contract. At this time, I do a newsletter for the James River Rugby Club, River Weekly, and I maintain two blogs (http://sapatui.blogspot.com/--this one has gone off in several directions, and I'm trying to focus it and http://jrrfcnews.blogspot.com/--this is a source for exercise information based on articles in River Weekly).

I'm a 23-year old studying Fine Art and Psychology at the University of North Texas. For a large majority of my life, the creative arts, particularly drawing/illustrating, has been a huge hobby turned aspiring career. I love working with any medium, but my favorite is probably Digital-based painting. I'm ready and willing to work with any type of design work, illustration, fantasy art, abstract painting, etc. Looking for employers willing to work with someone new to the field, yet very eager to work hard and make a name for myself.

Award winning freelance writer for hire. Winning essays & articles have been recognized/published by NASA, NPR and regional magazines. Looking for paid, freelance writing jobs. Specialize in articles, essays, technical writing, proof reading, blogs, Op eds, comedy & inspirational. Will consider advertising/flyer design & copy, copy editing, proof-reading and letter writing jobs as well. You tell me what you need and I'll do my best to meet that need. No job too small or unusual. Reasonable/flexible rates. I also create unique, personalized acrostic poems based on a person's name, personality and birth date for that upcoming special occasion. All work will be performed at my home office location on evenings and weekends. Samples of my work available upon request. Registered with several top freelance writing sites. I am looking to supplement my income on a part time basis now in preparation for working full time as a freelance worker upon retirement from my day job. I have an uncanny ability to understand the big picture of any writing project, while at the same time making sure it succeeds because of my extreme attention to detail. This dual skill set distinguishes me from many of my peers. If your project needs an experienced writer/proof reader to ensure overall success, I’m you’re gal! If you know of a church, business or individual who needs the assistance of a professional, published writer....spread the word! EXPERIENCE My experience as a professional writer/proof reader is in part tied to my current job as an engineering technical writer/document quality assurance specialist for The Boeing Company, working under contract to NASA on the International Space Station Program. I've been at Boeing for almost 17 years now, and have supported numerous project teams, including three years on the Communications team and three years as an Associate Writer / Proof-reader for the Boeing Technical Journal (BTJ), an in-house technical publication). In my capacity at Boeing, I have proof-read dozens of technical documents on a wide number of topics to ensure that all documents strictly adhere to both Boeing and NASA editing guidelines. Less than five of the Boeing/NASA documents I have proof read over the years were ever returned indicating additional work was needed in order for them to be published in online document repositories. I do not sign my name to any document unless I am satisfied I have done a thorough DQA review. Many of the senior engineers I work with are surprised by my attention to detail and "good catches" that they initially missed.

I have been writing for years, and recently again took up the pen. My portfolio contains research and homework assignments from my college degree program education, plus numerous poems, and articles for both the newspaper and my company web page. Because of my diversity of life experience, I adapt very readily to most subjects and points of interest. Life is great and full of learning!. The art of writing allows me to share the flow of energy that comes from a new experience. It gives me the capability of not only being able to save the experience in the memories of my heart, but, share them through the generosity of communication.
