Mary Rivera

Translator


TBG:

I provide translation services (English to Spanish) for TBG and have assisted the agency with recruitment of focus group participants. I am bilingual and have been providing translation services for various agencies since 2001.

Background:

I have worked in the area of human services for most of my adult life and currently work as a Community Health Advocate for Centura Health. I hold a Masters Degree in Pastoral Ministry with an emphasis on Hispanic ministry. My first experience with TBG was in the role of Regional Outreach Coordinator. TBG provided marketing for Child Health PlanPlus and provided the regional coordinators with media training. I also have experience with facilitation of focus groups and am a co-leader for Healthier Living Colorado™.

After hours:

My life away from the office revolves around family – immediate, extended and close friends. We are a tight-knit Hispanic family and actually enjoy spending time with one another! I consider translating my passion; I love the challenge of finding the most clear and effective way to convey a message from English to Spanish. I also play guitar and have dreams of learning to play the piano.
