I sincerely enjoy public speaking. Putting together a webinar or presentation that allows me to share insights and information with clients is one of my favorite parts of my job at Vocalink Global. Outside of work, I spend my time reading, playing board games, or running! I try to finish at least three books per week, get in at least 20 miles to stay in running shape for long distance races, and play at least 2 of the 150+ board games my husband and I own.
I joined Vocalink Global after fourteen years in the private practice of law, representing companies, including Vocalink Global, with respect to labor, employment, and public sector law. I received my J.D. from the University of Toledo College of Law as class valedictorian. I attended Adrian College, where I received my B.S., summa cum laude, in Communications: Argumentation and Advocacy.
I bring value to Vocalink Global’s clients in two ways. First, I ensure that Vocalink’s interpreters meet quality and compliance standards. Our clients can rest assured that Vocalink Global interpreters meet and exceed industry standards. Second, I research industry trends, laws and regulations affecting language access compliance and bring this knowledge to clients through blogs, white papers, and webinars.
Vocalink Global is unique in the language industry. Our commitment to compliance sets us apart. As an attorney, I understand deeply the concept so aptly stated by former U.S. Deputy Attorney General, Paul McNulty, when he said, “if you think compliance is an expense – try noncompliance.” Being part of a team that not only acts as the catalyst to multilingual communication, but does so while helping clients stay compliant, is a win-win for me.
