I recently completed a Double Masters program with Monash University and Université Jean Moulin Lyon III, specialising in translating French into English. As part of my studies, I worked as an in-house translator for the Laboratoire Triangle, a social sciences research unit in Lyon, France for six months. I have also been working as a private French tutor for over five years and as a undergraduate-level tutor in English grammar and translation for the past 12 months. 

As a recent graduate, I have an in-depth knowledge of translation strategies for varying text types and can offer a fresh and modern approach to translations, tailoring them for your specific needs and their intended purpose.

I specialise in:

  • International development
  • International affairs
  • History
  • Social sciences

Outside of studying/translating, I am heavily involved in the Scouting Movement, both as a Rover and an Assistant Venturer Scout Leader. I love outdoor activities, which I am able to participate in with scouts and with my annual involvement at a summer camp, Camp Cooinda, on the Gippsland Lakes.
