My Background

I was born and raised on a moshav in the Galilee region of Israel, where my mother taught me the love and appreciation of nature, land, and animals. This was my introduction to just some of the fields that would eventually become my life studies and profession. After finishing my National Service, I entered into nursing at Rambam Nursing School in Haifa and graduated in 1986. In 2007, I completed my education with a BA in Nursing, summa cum laude at the Tel Aviv University.


I have worked as a nurse for 23 years. Nursing has given me a rich experience in critical areas of medicine. Some of the fields I have worked in have included The Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Public Health, as well as caring for the autistic. Working as a nurse, keeps my medical knowledge cutting edge.

Professional Experience: I have worked as a Medical and Life Science Translator since 1998. Please see my specific
fields of translation.

Guest Lecturer: I have been a guest lecturer at universities and conferences. For more information, please see my Lectures page for further details.

Personal Studies: At Open University, I studied several Life Science courses. I have also taken courses in Alternative Medicine, which covered the study of Acupressure, Universal Life Force Energy, and Reiki.

Certification: I am an ITA Recognized Translator and hold ALTA Certificate of Proficiency.

Hobbies: My hobbies include nature and animals, handicrafts (crochet, knitting, and tatting), reading, cooking and gastronomy. However, one of my favorite hobbies is the study of culture, which I actively pursue with great interest.
