Testimonials for Interpreter Training

Julie is the trainer par excellence. Her breadth of experience in working with different cultural communities serves as the foundation for all her work. Her training style and methodology encourages self-confidence, and the enthusiasm to serve the many language communities that need access to respectful health care services. I recommend Julie’s services to any group or company that desires a change in how we serve patients and their families.Teresita Bautista 1st – Consultant and Educator at TCB Consultant

Thank you for taking care of those that can then, take care of others.

Julie is the most dynamic, knowledgeable and competent trainer I have ever met . Her eloquence, creativity and teaching abilities allow her students to bring out the best in them. During my two years of being a trainer the first thing that comes to my mind when facing a training dilemma is, “what would Julie if she were in my place”?Maha S.

Many words cannot describe you. You stand alone, meaning you outshine all around you. You are such a wonderful special lady that I finally got to meet, and for that I am thankful. I was determined to get into your course and thanks to your willingness to help I finally met you and took your wonderful course.Bridging the Gap participant

I really enjoyed your session! Thanks so much for offering such important information and such great stress-relieving tips. It was so exciting to learn some new techniques as well as see how interested everyone was in learning about “alternative” methods.

I can’t thank you enough for all the encouragement, help, kind words, teaching skills, gentleness, kindness, entertainment and many more I will probably leave out.Bridging the Gap participant

We are so grateful for the guidance, patience and experience that you have given us at Kokua Kalihi Valley Comprehensive Services. We would never have trained all of our interpreters without you! We’ve now trained over 50 bilingual KKV staff and have trained all of our providers on how to work effectively with interpreters. You are an inspiration to us!Marina Sapolu – Cross Cultural Bridges Program Director – KKV, Honolulu, Hawaii
