Meet the MATI Board: Kristy Brown Lust


MATI Director Kristy Brown Lust works from French to English. She holds a Master’s degree in Translation.


Why did you decide to join MATI? I joined MATI for two reasons: First, I wanted to connect with other translation and interpreting professionals to build relationships so we can learn from each other, troubleshoot challenges, and celebrate successes. Second, I believe it’s important to improve the visibility of translation and interpretation professionals. We do crucial work that helps make the world a better place, and MATI gives us a strong collective voice.


What is your favorite part of the workday? My favorite part of the day is when I’m in the midst of translating an interesting document.


What do you do in your free time? In the summer, I can be found most often outside reading on my back porch.


What are you most looking forward to about your participation on the MATI Board? I’m excited for the opportunity to meet more translators and interpreters and support them through strong communication and advocacy.
