Team: Translation Division

I specialise in: Translation Recruitment (Temporary & Permanent)

Languages: English, Spanish & Italian 

I’ve been at Euro London since: 2016

About me: I’ve always wanted a career that centered around working with people and one that presented me with new challenges every single day. Working at Euro London has given me this opportunity-  and also has the additional bonus of being a multilingual and multicultural workplace. Learning a language is so much more than the words on a page because you also find out a lot about the culture attached to it. I started studying Spanish at school and enjoyed it immensely from the offset, involving myself in two Spanish drama productions and choosing to continue learning it until the end of Sixth form. Having family and friends based in Italy allows me to travel there regularly, taking full advantage of the wonderful cuisine every time I go!

I would say that my  main hobby is lacrosse. Training/competing still occupies a lot of my spare time.

If I were a famous person, I would be: Adele – her voice is amazing and she’s so down to earth

Fun fact:  I was once interviewed for an article that was published in Miss Vogue
