Julie Thompson didn't like to study Spanish in school. But, she plugged away at it anyway, never dreaming that she would spend the rest of her life speaking, writing, reading and teaching it! She interrupted her college studies to begin volunteer work, and that turned out to be the beginning of her language career. When she moved to South America in 1989, she added yet another language to the list: Ecuadorian Quichua. She was a literacy and language instruction volunteer in South America from 1989 to 2018. Currently she is the owner of ESEN Translation Services, a minority/woman owned small business, offering language services in English, Spanish and Ecuadorian Quichua. These including translation, interpretation, proofreading, transcription, editing and language learning.
In 2011, she published the book, "Wanna Go Where?", a guide into planning for a move abroad. Her second book, "5 Reasons to NOT Learn a Second Language" is in the planning stage of a full reediting. And, she has also published her first children's book, Olivia and The Mush, which currently is available in English; the Spanish translation will be made available this fall.
