Hello! My educational background makes me comfortable in advanced educational settings and with many of the social sciences. I have worked a number of years in the DC metro area and am versed in government-ese and comfortable in those settings.
I am an open minded individual and have a history of interpreting in international settings -- whether this means an actual overseas environment (e.g., Turkey, Pakistan, Germany); or interpreting at events held by groups that find themselves in the minority (e.g., Deaf Muslims, Women's groups, Transgender groups). I am comfortable in most situations, and believe that one of my strongest assets is the ability to interface personably and professionally with everyone involved in the interpreted situation. I look forward to working with you!
