    12+ years of experience in hospitals, medical clinics, mental health clinics, workers compensation, rehabilitation and long-term care, including Stanford Hospital and Clinics and Sequoia Hospital in Redwood City.

    business & other Interpreting

    With an MBA in international business and many years working in the business world, I am right at home with business and financial issues. I have managed hundreds of millions of dollars worth of commercial real estate and run a highly successful job training program.

    Laura's geographical range

    I work in San Mateo County (Burlingame, San Mateo, Belmont, Foster City, Redwood Shores, San Carlos, Redwood City, Menlo Park) and northern Santa Clara County (Palo Alto), California. I accept assignments elsewhere only in special circumstances.


    I specialize in simultaneous interpreting, because it is more accurate and takes half as long as consecutive interpreting.
