    I am widowed and retired from full time employment but like to keep working. This year I will be testing for national certification as a Medical Interpreter Spanish- English. I am studying to learn the Russian language and in a year or so plan to spend some time in Russia to complete the study and gain proficiency. I am a volunteer Interpreter with a free clinic and do a few other things that keep me busy.
