Core Member

Sue started her interpreting career as a ‘communicator’ a couple of years prior to the establishment of the AUT Interpreting program in 1992. She enroled in the inaugural diploma programme and since graduating in 1995 has worked primarily as a community based interpreter with a keen interest in legal and mental health work.

Sue also enjoys Video Relay Interpreting and sees this relatively new interpreting medium in NZ as a positive step towards access equity for the Deaf community.

Sue enjoys mentoring new graduates of the interpreting programme; as a CODA she has an innate understanding of the Deaf community and willingly shares her years of interpreting experience when approached.
