Hi, I’m Gigi Sefchick
I am a Healthcare Interpreter (CCHI) and Court Certified Interpreter through the State of Nevada. I just recently retired from the Washoe County District Attorney's Office where I worked as a victim advocate since 2004. Now I can dedicate myself to creating training opportunities for Interpreters.
After years of interpreting, I have come to realize that there is a lack of language specific materials for court interpreters. I believe that understanding the subject matter is important, but what good is it, if we cannot interpret it into the target language? My goal is to try to fill that gap in a fun and innovative way, emphasizing on terminology, by providing affordable opportunities to obtain continuing education credits. I also use real and current court cases and all different types of media, to provide a dynamic experience for interpreters.
I moved with my family to the US from Mexico in 2002, where my background is in education. I have been instructing aspiring and certified judiciary interpreters since 2005.
Other courses in the works are True Crime Podcasts, DNA, Intimate Partner Violence, and Forensic Psychology. Please sign up below to receive information from GSO Services. I would love to hear from you! https://gsoservices.net/.
