The "Vivian" beyond a translator:
Besides being a translator, or a medical linguist, she is also a mother of two lovely kids and has a Dutch-Chinese cross-cultural family. She likes cooking, reading and cycling on the flat bicycle roads in the Netherlands. She is that type of person that people would say to be serious-minded, responsive, and reliable.
