Working with Lisa has been very smooth and rewarding. Her work has been delivered on
time and her translations have been of very high quality. She follows directions and delivers
her work completely and accurately. I recommend her thoroughly for French to English
—E. MEDINA, Project Manager, iLanguage Translation Agency
Over the past several years, Lisa has worked with the University of Texas at San Antonio Publications Office on a variety of freelance writing assignments. Her work is consistently of the highest caliber. She is a skilled writer and exhibits a professional demeanor in interviews with university faculty. She has developed an excellent working relationship with our editorial staff and has the ability to write on a wide variety of subjects.
Lisa has become a valued and reliable resource to our editorial team andwould be a great asset to an organization's editorial staff.
—ELTON SMITH, Director of University Publications, UT San Antonio
Lisa was contracted to write several articles for our annual magazine, Ovations.
Not one draft Lisa submitted was edited by the dean, and that is a big compliment. She told the story we wanted conveyed and had a keen ability to get the story from the source. We will absolutely use her services again and can't wait to read her tales.
—DEBORAH D. THOMAS, College of Liberal and Fine Arts, UT San Antonio
We work regularly with Lisa. She is a very efficient, nice translator who does quality work
and is always on time.

—Project manager at French translation agency specializing in marketing
Lisa did an excellent job editing my grant proposal and a manuscript. Due to her outstanding service, my application was selected for a prestigious Leukemia and Lymphoma Society career development grant. The manuscript was accepted for publication in Molecular and Cellular Biology. More importantly, her service was fast and reliable. I recommend to her to my colleagues with no hesitation.
—SANG EUN LEE, Ph.D., Researcher and Professor, UT Health Science Center
I am the senior patient education editor for a major Memphis children’s hospital, and Lisa has been extremely helpful editing a wide array of materials for us. Lisa has a gift for simplifying the most difficult medical language. She is fast and efficient in her editing, and she is not afraid to ask questions to make sure she is completing a job correctly. We were already working with several Spanish translators, but Lisa has been very helpful in proofing the work of these other translators. She provides an extra level of security, so we can be sure our patient families understand what is happening with their children. I would highly recommend Lisa for editing health care education materials.
—LOIS M. YOUNG

When I’m not hard at work at my computer, I’m contorting myself for yoga and pilates, taking interesting walks anywhere, planning another adventurous trip (Costa Rica, Tanzania, Switzerland, Japan), gathering friends around my table, or rambling through a forest with my dear Frenchman.
