Karen is a talented bilingual Spanish / English interpreter with over ten years of phone and video interpreting experience. She also had the opportunity to mentor and train fellow interpreter colleagues and support in the areas of Quality Assurance and Training Development for over five years. She joined the AMN family in 2018 as an interpreter, before earning a promotion to Training Specialist and most recently, Senior Training Specialist. She thrives on helping others with challenges and ambitious goals. Her educational background is in Physical Therapy, Early Stimulation, and Early Stage Development. Her knowledge in the medical field has allowed her to quickly adapt to the ever-changing encounters faced by medical interpreters. Her side passions are photography and baking. She is a self-taught, expert baker, educated by watching and practicing tutorials on YouTube, which allowed her to fulfill her dream of becoming a small business owner. Other than baking, she loves learning, and is currently learning Portuguese as her third, but certainly not last language. Her mottos are, “everything is on YouTube!” and "If you put your mind to it you can do it!"
