This workshop will introduce the theory and principles of hospice care. Hospice Care is end-of-life care, but also support for the family and loved ones. Our role as interpreter in this setting is very delicate and with proper training and preparation we will be best prepared to understand our role.

She has worked as a professional interpreter since 1988 both in Washington State, as well as Arizona. She has enjoyed creating and presenting in-services and workshops state-wide for the past 15 years, inspiring and encouraging interpreters of all skill levels. She works full time as a freelance interpreter for local agencies, enjoying the variety of medical, legal and post-secondary.  Kirsten has been a volunteer with various hospice providers across the valley for 8 years, and is trained for adult care, respite, pediatric services and is currently involved with the 11th hour program. She resides in Phoenix with her husband of 28 years, and enjoys being a mother of 4 daughters.
