Hi! I'm María
MORE ABOUT ME
I was born and raised in Argentina, and I have lived in the USA for nearly ten years. I completed my B.A. as a teacher of English as a Second Language in Santa Fe, as well as an M.A. in Spanish and TESOL in Morgantown, WV.
Upon arriving in Huntsville, Alabama, I discovered medical interpreting and translation... and there was no turning back. Since 2013, I have worked passionately in these two linguistic professions. I constantly strive to become a better professional by attending classes, webinars and conferences, and reading. I also work with professional organizations for interpreters and translators, to foster best practices in our industry. I am a member of the following:
- IMIA (International Medical Interpreters Association) - Education Committee
- ITAA (Interpreters and Translators Association of Alabama) - Vice-President
- ATA (American Translators Association) - Member of various committees. Editor of Caduceus
