Between 2008-2009 I interpreted at numerous events in Santa Cruz, Bolivia involving environmental issues such as bio-trade, forest and biodiversity conservation, land and soil conservation and management, natural resource conservation, national park and protected areas conservation and management, the REDD program, climate credits programs, and other environmental matters for local universities, non-governmental agencies, locally owned lumber and forestry companies, and the Santa Cruz Chamber of Forestry.

I served as an interpreter in the Santa Cruz family court for various foreign families seeking adoption of Bolivian children, and provided accompaniment interpretation for foreign families seeking residency in Bolivia.

I interpreted at eight 5-day courses held by the Santa Cruz Chamber of Commerce and the Santa Cruz Chamber of Exporters over a 2-year period, for PYMES (Small and Mid-sized Companies) during which time they were trained in marketing and networking techniques by members of visiting European chambers of commerce.

Between 2005-2007 I did medical interpretation in Fresno, California 4-8 times a month for Spanish-speaking patients. The state of CA is legally obliged to provide interpretation at medical visits for all non-English speaking patients.
