I have been married for 26 years to my best friend Emily. We have two incredible daughters together. Emily and I both work together and we founded Alfonso Interpreting 11 years ago. For many years, I served the Spanish community by interpreting in court, hospitals, doctor offices, and many other locations. As a CCHI Certifified Healthcare Interpreter, I witnessed first hand the disastrous results of many workplace injuries. As a bilingual Authorized OSHA safety trainer, our focus is on prevention. Our combined safety knowledge with language services provide a truly unique and needed service. A successful safety culture must also embrace linguistic and cultural differences as well.
