Rebecca is a Senior Spanish/English Translator who grew up in North San Diego and now lives in Oceanside, California.
She learned to master Spanish while teaching English in Honduras from 2013 to 2014, and has been fascinated by language ever since.
While she holds a bachelor’s degree from Point Loma Nazarene University, Rebecca also completed a Spanish-English Translation certification program at the University of California-San Diego Extension. She is a member of the American Translators Association, and amongst other accomplishments, served as the personal interpreter for the Anglican Archbishop of Mexico during a national conference in 2015 in the U.S.
Rebecca has interpreted and translated for people & dialects from Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Cuba, and the U.S. She also translates as a volunteer for Kiva, a non-profit organization providing small business loans to low-income entrepreneurs and students in over 80 countries worldwide. Kiva’s mission is to connect people through lending to help alleviate poverty.
Rebecca has translation experience across many disciplines, including journalism, tourism, and the arts. As an example, a recent project included translations for The Art Experts, her role being the translation of four websites’ worth of content on the subject of art authentication and art appraisal.
When it comes to passions, Rebecca is most excited by her ability to use her translation skills to help individuals and companies reach more people both linguistically and culturally.
When she’s not busy translating, she has another passion: ministering to children, both near and far. Rebecca has a long-standing involvement leading the Children’s Ministry efforts at St. Michael’s by the Sea in Carlsbad, California. She also leads a quarterly volunteer team that provides aid to a children’s orphanage in Tijuana called Vida Joven de México.
