Meet the Instructor

Katie Fitzpatrick

I have an MA in Linguistics from Gallaudet University, NIC Advanced Certification, and 11 years of experience, but most importantly, I’m a fellow interpreter in the trenches who has an easier time taking care of other people than myself—which is precisely why I think this class is so important. If you are not yet doing your morning yoga and drinking herbal tea while rising with the sunrise, then come join me for a cup of cocoa on the couch with my scruffy Lab-mix to keep our toes warm. Let’s talk about what happens when you come down from the mountain and are in those interpreting valleys – feeling those aches, pains, stresses and worries, and what we can do about them day to day.
