Plain Language Teacher,
Certified Spanish & French Linguist
Growing up, Maria wanted to learn a hundred languages. She’s pretty sure that owning Transcend comes as close as possible to achieving that dream. Maria founded Transcend in 1991 (out of her garage), and while the company’s grown a bit since then, Maria remains just as laser-focused on providing top-quality language services to our clients.
In addition to serving as our CEO, Maria is our in-house expert on Plain Language and readability, a certified linguist in French and Spanish, an adept project manager, and our number one innovator. She persistently poses the same question: How can we learn to work even more effectively and efficiently? She matches her high expectations of her coworkers with an undying faith in their abilities. If you’ve worked with Maria, you’ve probably learned you could do things you never would have reached for alone.
Maria travels extensively, and her favorite part of it’s just what you might expect: being around a different language! A student of Farsi, Italian, Mandarin, and Arabic, Maria’s lately become fascinated with Swedish. Her favorite activity, though, isn’t language-related at all: above all else, she loves being a mum to her three lovely sons.
