Emily Joy Sielen, Art Therapy '09, is works as a freelance interpreter and translator near Seattle, Wash. She was interviewed for a special report about the growing need for healthcare interpreters.
In March 2017, SPI students in the Advanced Interpreting Practice course donned new t-shirts that identified them as volunteer interpreters for the 2nd Annual West Allis/West Milwaukee Latino Health Fair. The shirts were a hit among the fair organizers and students alike, making the interpreters easily visible for those who required their services.
