Certified Spanish Interpreter Federal Court, California Court, and California Medical

USDOS Escort and Seminar Spanish Interpreter

A bright shining star has left us. Esther was an indefatigable advocate for interpreters and their profession. She was also an amazing trainer. We eagerly followed her endeavors through her Twitter handle @MmeInterpreter.  She cared for the downtrodden by organizing volunteer interpreter services for the now too often crises such as unaccompanied minors at the border, the Muslim ban, earthquake victims, trauma victims, etc. In addition, she spearheaded the training of interpreters for Amerindian languages. Esther, you will be missed by so many…

    So sorry about the lost of great professional and a kind person. She was always openly sharing her experiences and making us see the light in our profession!

    Unexpected, I did not know she was ill.
    I had her several times for seminars and always
    found her to be a great teacher and warm and
    sympathetic on a personal level.

    She was amazing!

  1. She was a very good friend. I will miss her. Today is a very sad day for me.

    The wealth of resources she provided for us can be found at

  2. Very saddened with the news!!! She was indeed a kind soul. I had the good fortune of having her as an instructor. Our profession and the world have lost a shining star. May her memory live in our hearts.
