What is your favorite thing about offering translation solutions? We are helping other companies take their business global. I believe breaking the language barriers literally opens new worlds for our clients.
What languages do you speak? Native Fluency English, Native Fluency Spanish, Near Native Fluency French, Near Native Fluency Italian
What country would you most like to visit? I’ve been to Spain and cannot wait to go back. My favorite European country to visit yet.
If tomorrow you could speak another language fluently, which would it be? In March I had a layover in Germany and that is the first country I’ve “visited” where I did not speak the language. I found that very interesting and decided that German would be my next language to learn.
Favorite foreign cuisine: I come from Mexican background so that would be my favorite. But second to that I would have to say Indian.
Favorite music genre: My music taste really is everywhere. It really depends on what I am doing and what my mood is. I can be listening to Queen one drive home to working out to Eazy- E.
Fun fact? In high school I almost enrolled in Spanish as my selected foreign language instead of French. Had I done that I probably would not have majored in French at NIU and probably not be here at Interpro Translation Solutions. It’s great to explore new things.
Funniest international experience: While in Barcelona my fiancée and I decided to walk to our hotel from the Barcelona game. We figured it would take us 30 minutes at most. It ended up taking us about 3 hours. We were walking the streets of Barcelona at 2 in the morning with at 6 am flight.
