Hi! I’m Claire. A native French speaker, I hold a Bachelor’s degree in English and Italian, with a specialization in International Business. I’m currently completing a Master’s degree in Italian literature.

I landed in Thunder Bay, Ontario, in 2015, as an international exchange student, and loved it so much that I’m still here several years later! My experience working and volunteering for both French- and English-language organizations made me realize the importance of multilingualism in our community, as well as the need for local translation services. Today, I’m taking a step forward with the launch of my own business, Tonnerre Translation and Writing Services, which will allow me to provide individualized services that meet my clients’ expectations. I’m looking forward to helping local businesses and associations better communicate with their clients in both French and English!
