My career

I am a medical and legal interpreter. I don't have a job here yet. I'm working on that. I have an interview for a project manager position.

Hobbies take me outdoors

I love to snowboard. I like paddle boarding, hiking, biking, rollerblading, Zumba, anything that's active I do. I care a lot about my health, and I want to keep healthy, so I try to eat right and exercise as well. My favorite thing to do outside is biking.

Helping is my passion

Helping others inspires me. That's why I love my job. It's my passion to break that communication barrier between Spanish-speaking patients at the hospital and English-speaking doctors. I was born in El Salvador, and I came here when I was 9 years old. I lived in El Salvador during the war.

So when I came here I would interview for everybody, my grandfather, for my dad. My grandfather won the Powerball, and he went to spin the wheel. They didn't have interpreters back then, so they used me. I was like 12; that was my first job, on TV. He won $100,000.
