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 sometimes accept assignments in San Jose, San Francisco, Hayward, and elsewhere, but a 3-hour minimum applies to assignments outside of my geographical range.


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