Based in Houston.

Available anywhere online.


I'm a Houston-based Spanish interpreter with 20 years of experience in healthcare, court, and conference interpreting. I have broad experience, and my specialties are food policy and social justice.

 I've got a full bio with my training, credentials, and education , if you're into that kind of thing. Want to connect on LinkedIn? Great.

Not into long bios? Cool. Let's talk about your work.



I'm a partner at  Seven Sisters Interpreter Training & Consulting . Our small but mighty collaborative group designs and delivers high-level training intensives and personalized coaching sessions for interpreters.

Seven Sisters also partners with healthcare educators to coordinate and design inter-professional education opportunities that bring together interpreters and students.

I've got lots of experience teaching undergrad courses, and currently teach in the graduate program for the Glendon College Masters of Conference Interpreting.


Since 2012, I've kept an award-winning blog called That Interpreter. I've also published the occasional article for the American Translators Association Interpreters Division and Educators Division blogs, and some trade publications.

I've presented extensively on quality in interpreter services, interpreting techniques, and remote interpreting.

If you're looking for a dynamic speaker to talk to your group, fill out the contact form. I'd love to hear from you.

Extremely easy to work with.

Carlos A. Trincado, Trincado Translation Services

Professional and up to last-minute challenges as well. Very responsive to my e-mails and text messages.

Professor Carrie Foote, Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis

It was a pleasure working with Liz for a major national conference I hosted at my University. She also stayed one step ahead of our conference planning team in terms of making sure we had what was needed to make interpretation a success for our participants. Liz met each and every deadline, helped quickly resolve a couple of minor onsite challenges, was extremely easy to work with and our conference participants loved her.

Erin Chavez, Manager, Language Services, Indiana University Health

I love collaborating with Liz because she does a great job with creating custom workshops to meet my team's CEU needs for maintaining their national certification. She shares best practices with my interpreters and shares personal stories about the ups and downs of her own journey as a professional interpreter. ter.
