At LinguaLinx, words and languages are our business and our passion. Our success depends having a team of great people behind our work! We’d like to show you a little bit of who we are. With that, join us in welcoming Tiffany Freeman to the team as our newest Project Manager! Tiffany joined our team in April 2017. She brings years of project management experience with language services providers. We sat down with her during her first few months on the job to talk with her about her new role and what she is most looking forward to!
Welcome to our team! Let’s start with: “Why LinguaLinx?”
I’ve been a project manager in this industry for several years. Life is all about opportunities, and I believe in this industry you face that every day. I’m excited to be working at LinguaLinx with such a talented team and look forward to learning new skills.
Speaking of skills, which ones from your previous project management roles will help you out with this new role?
In my previous role I was client facing and responsible for the entire life cycle of a localization job. I was also responsible for growing and maintaining a healthy client account/relationship. I think being able to manage my time effectively in multiple tasks/areas while still being flexible will help me be successful in my new career here at LinguaLinx.
What excites you most about coming to work here?
For me it’s the opportunity to be able to work in a variety of industries in such a supporting work environment.
Where did you attend school and what was your major?
I received my Bachelor of Arts at Syracuse University for Italian and Modern Foreign Languages. I also have a MA from Binghampton University in Italian with a certificate in translation studies.
You’ll be based in Rochester, NY. What brought you to that area?
I was raised in the Finger Lakes Region (central New York), and after finishing school my version of moving to the “big city” was Rochester.
What do you like most about Rochester?
In my opinion, Rochester has a variety of things to do. I enjoy being outside, but am not a fan of the winter months so it’s nice to have options for every season.
Do you speak multiple languages?
I can speak Italian and Spanish (not fluently anymore) and also understand Russian.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I am an avid Crossfitter and also love to cook (when I have the time).
Tell us one random fact about you.
My favorite season is fall – and it’s definitely not because of the weather. It’s solely because I am a lover of all things pumpkin flavored!
What is your favorite place you’ve visited and why?
Italy – I was a foreign exchange student there during high school. Not knowing one word of Italian my experience there forced me to grow up and learn about life quickly. For that, I will be forever grateful to the country.
