Jennifer Beauchamp-Ankeny was born in Puerto Rico and moved with her family to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, when she was five. Although everyone always asks "why on earth would you move from Puerto Rico to Wisconsin?" (a valid question) the answer is simple: in search for a better education. Thanks to her parents' move, she went to college, graduated from the Monterey Institute of International Studies with a Masters in Spanish Conference Interpretation and Translation and is currently working as a court and conference interpreter. Jennifer has worked for the State Department, the Embassy of Mexico, the World Bank, the Department of Justice, Harvard University, MIT and countless other clients. She has interpreted at events on poverty, drugs, education, insurance, medicine and healthcare, business administration, economy, security and government policy. She has also had the opportunity to interpret for Mexican President Felipe Calderon, former US Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Senator John McCain, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, the 10th President of the World Bank Paul Wolfowitz, Elizabeth Warren, Charlie Baker and actor Diego Luna. The job of an interpreter is one requiring continual study given the breadth of topics one has to interpret and therefore Jennifer is committed to ensuring that all children have access to quality education. She loves to dance and read in her free time and spend time with her son who is a student at Bates Elementary.
