Her strengths: speed, efficiency, dynamism, communication.
An efficient manager, Velox truly shines when she receives a deluge of urgent translation requests. Her ability to answer emails in the blink of an eye is astonishing!
Like the plentiful blueberries in her native Lac Saint-Jean, Audrey makes a big impression! This sociable gal loves meeting new people, chatting and networking. In a room full of strangers, she’s in her element. It’s hard to imagine she was once a quiet, reserved kid with a poetic streak, who enjoyed spending time alone, reading and writing. But she also had an insatiable desire to travel and explore the world. That’s no doubt what led her to study languages and literature at college, followed by translation at the Université de Montréal. It was during her time at university that she discovered her natural talent as a leader and organizer. In 1997, her translation degree in hand, she landed a job at a market research firm in Montreal, where she soon moved up the ranks from translator to director of the translation department. It was there that she developed her excellent management, customer relations and revision skills. In 2006, she teamed up with her colleague and friend, Véronique, to found Fusion Traductions inc. Audrey qualifies herself as a generalist translator. She’s been a member of the Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec (OTTIAQ) since December 2008.
Spirited and full of life, Audrey’s not afraid to speak her mind and has no time for banality. She’s so self-assured she might come across as tough, but she has a heart of gold. A long-time volunteer, she’s participated in a variety of charitable causes, particularly those devoted to children. She feels best when she’s taking time out to help others.
Her passions? Music, running and… her adorable golden retriever who is Fusion’s official mascot and four-legged therapist. Audrey loves to plug in her earphones and head out for a run in the city streets or along forest paths, feeling the sun and wind on her cheeks as she fills her lungs with fresh air. When you spend your day in front of a computer, it’s an amazing feeling!
Her future projects: start a family, grow her own vegetables and run a marathon.
