As the field of interpreting has become more professionalized, there are those who feel a disconnect between the work and the spirit of the profession. Gina Gonzalez is a trilingual interpreter and grass roots activist who seeks a return to the roots of the profession: serving the Deaf community with spirit. She proposes a new integrative model of interpreting that challenges the current paradigm. Her activism and pursuit of authentic dialogue puts her at the forefront of change in her community.
