About me

During the course of my career in business and international relations in Russia and the United States I have been continuously using and developing my skills as a Russian-language interpreter and translator.

I worked with top business companies, universities, international organizations and executives from all over the world and know how to handle communications in a multilingual and multicultural environment. As a hobby, I also taught English part-time to different groups of students, from toddlers to adults, just because I loved it.

In 2018, I was certified as a court interpreter in the states of Pennsylvania and Illinois and began interpreting in courts and during depositions, including over the phone and video during the pandemic. In 2019, I was certified as an immigration court interpreter.
