I'm a bilingual interpreter that has lived in the U.S. for over 20 years and currently reside in the Denver Metro Area. I hold 10+ years of interpretive experience in legal, medical, and the public sector. I speak S'gaw Karen and American English.

I was born in Mae Sot, Thailand to a S'gaw Karen and Pwo Karen mother and a S'gaw Karen, Karenni, and Chinese father from Myanmar (Burma). Due to the world's longest ongoing civil war, many Karen people were internally displaced. I was one of these displaced individuals. At age 11, with the help of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), I immigrated to the U.S. with my family, settling in the state of Connecticut.

After transitioning to a new culture and environment, I graduated from high school and moved onto college. With a focus in the field of social sciences, I graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University in 2010 with a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and Applied Social Relations.

This unique multicultural and multilingual upbringing has provided me a unique lens and skillset to interweave both American and Karen values, experiences, and communication styles into my interpretive work. By bridging the gap between a Limited English Proficiency (LEP) client and English speaking providers, I've provided support to a multitude of individuals across a variety of sectors.
