For the past fifteen years, Ms. Hu has devoted herself full-time to China-related consulting projects and Sino-US cultural and business exchanges. Apart from teaching Chinese language and conducting cross-cultural trainings for China-bound Americans, as well as interpreting for a wide range of government and private agencies and business organizations, Ms. Hu also provides consultations for US-based organizations that do business or conduct cultural/media exchanges with China.

As a professional Chinese<>English interpreter/translator, she conducts simultaneous and consecutive interpreting for visiting high-ranking Chinese delegations, international conferences, business and academic communities, legal, medical and many other industries.  She has facilitated many US-China trade dialogues, academic forums and cross-cultural trainings for outbound US expatriates as well as inbound Chinese executives.  The consistency of her high quality services and professionalism are routinely recognized by her clients and peers as among the best in the field.  She is one of the few State Department qualified Mandarin interpreters in the state of Illinois.
