Elena was born in Galway, a small city in the west of Ireland. She graduated from the University of Limerick with a degree in International Studies and Spanish and holds a master’s Degrees in Translation and Interpretation.

In her free time, Elena’s favorite things are exercise and she practices both running and powerlifting. She is part of a powerlifting team and finds it to be the perfect physical balance to compliment a mentally demanding profession in languages. Elena also considers herself to be an undercover Mexican food critic and is yet to find Pozole, Micheladas and Cochinita that is better than her mother-in-law’s.
Elena holds a special place in her heart for legal translation, as this is where her career started out.

Learning new things is something which she is very enthusiastic to have been able to develop in her role at Bromberg. Elena’s passion for learning languages was ignited once again due to the constant interaction with different languages on a day-to-day basis at Bromberg and has since started to learn Italian, something she hopes to master as well as her Spanish in the coming years.
