When I first started my job as medical interpreter, I studied privately with Julieta because I wanted to be able to get my skills to the level where I could excel in my new career. My lessons with Julieta were innovative, fun and challenging. After working in an area hospital for six years, during which time I became a nationally certified medical interpreter, I passed the court exam and am now a certified court interpreter for the state of Idaho. I feel extremely grateful and lucky that I began my interpreting career with Julieta as my teacher and mentor. Without her encouragement and skill as a teacher, I would not have come this far.
