MA in Applied Languages, Aarhus University, 1992. Freelance since 1999.

She often works into English, as when helping to adapt and translate selected titles in the Reflections series. Tinkering with language is her profession and her favourite pastime. What makes her tick? Working with people who are equally intent on making words sparkle. Well, that and choir practice, books and home-grown edibles.
