Professional Summary

Ambitious Interpreter with aptitude for learning topic-specific concepts within a broad number of subjects quickly and effectively in order to interpret the content between English and American Sign Language users. Bringing in-depth knowledge of cultural context and interpersonal skills to every assignment, regardless of what company, college, medical facility, or social service sector I was working in that day. Eager to transfer the skills strengthened in a non-traditional career path that required learning and studying language, concepts, and people from many different fields such as tech, medical, advertising, government sectors, healthcare, insurance and benefits, policies and social welfare programs. Interpreting requires proficiency at being adaptable, learning new things very quickly, and having excellent people skills. I look forward to applying my unique background to the field of marketing.
