Carina Wurzinger joined the JVI as a Management Assistant in July 2014. She previously worked with the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe, providing assistance to the Executive Director, and as a freelance translator for German, Spanish and English. Prior to that, Carina had been teaching German at the University Preparation Program in Vienna, where she had the chance to work with people from different cultural backgrounds. Intercultural exchange has always been of great interest to Carina. This is why she studied Translation and Interpreting at the University of Vienna, from which she holds a Master’s degree. After her studies, she gained experiences abroad working for a translation agency in Granada, for a newspaper in Málaga, joining the German Translation Unit of the European Parliament in Luxembourg for a traineeship, and finally working as a lecturer for German and Translation for one semester at Aston University in Birmingham.
