My college major was entomology, and I graduated from Cornell University with a BS degree in 1977. After that I did an agriculture internship (Praktikum) in Germany to acquire hands-on experience in agriculture. I worked for 23 years as a research specialist in entomology for Virginia Tech. I earned my translation certificate after successfully completing the New York University online studies program in 2005. My areas of expertise are science and patents. I started translating in 2004 and became a full-time translator in 2006.
