A New Kind of Birth: From Midwife to Translator w/ Julie Burns


If you’re a parent, you know there are few things more beautiful than watching a child come into the world.

One minute, they’re not here.

And the next, the new reality is one that includes them.

It’s this respect and awe of the miracle of birth that actually led Julie Burns into the world of translating & interpreting.

Julie was a guest on the Move the World with Words podcast recently, and what a story she has. She talked all about:

  • Fleeing Guatemala with her family due to political tensions
  • Her time as a midwife and how that prepared her for a career in translation
  • Why she doesn’t stress out about staying on top of the latest trends
  • What Move the World with Words means to her
