Irina grew up in a small Siberian town in Russia. At the age of four, she learned her first English words and fell in love with the English language. At school she was the best student in her English class and decided to enter the Linguistic University to study it further. After graduating from the University with Honors, she taught English to kids in Japan and South Korea. It was a wonderful experience. Irina also got the chance to learn some Japanese and Korean. After that she moved to Canada and then to the US, where she’s been living ever since with her husband and two kids.
In 2012, she changed her career path by becoming a freelance translator. She loves her job and the freedom and flexibility that it gives her. Irina also likes traveling, reading and mountain skiing.
