I am a Spanish to English medical translator and CCHI certified health care interpreter.
I found my way to medical translation and interpretation after many years of employment as a bilingual social work, investigating elder abuse and assisting older and disabled adults –usually monolingual Spanish speakers-- with medical, social, and economic concerns. Because of this work experience, I have a keen interest in translating topics related to gerontology and geriatrics.
Through medical translation and healthcare interpreting, I am able to effectively combine my prior work experience with my language fluency. I provide high-quality language services for demanding clients in medical and academic sectors.
I graduated from California State University at Monterey Bay with a B.A. in World Languages and Cultures, with emphasis in Spanish, and subsequently obtained a certificate in Spanish to English Translation from New York University. Additionally, I am a CCHI Certified Healthcare Interpreter, with experience in general medicine, endocrinology, neurology, and child psychiatry.
I further my professional development with trainings, classes, and conferences related to translation, interpretation, elder social and medical topics, and aging and mental health. I am also a Hospice Volunteer Visitor, spending time with end of life patients in their homes or residential facilities.
