Kristina Edinger

Born and raised in the U.S., I moved to Chile in 1996. Currently, I am completing an online translation studies certificate from the University of Denver with the goal of launching a second career as a translator (SP>EN). I hold a BA from New York University and an MBA from Loyola University in Maryland. In my free time, I love to travel, practice Bikram Yoga, play my cello, drink coffee and read.
