Topic To Be Announced
Sean M. Normansell was born in Houston, Texas. A native English speaker, he studied Spanish and French in High School. Post graduation saw him working in the construction industry, followed by over fifteen years of ad hoc interpretation and bilingual positions ranging from construction, landscaping, lawn maintenance and irrigation to debt collections management and crew coordination for a foundation leveling contractor. Moving to Georgia in 2007, Sean elected to seek work as an independent Spanish interpreter after learning about the large non-English speaking population in the Atlanta area. He completed the 40 hours Bridging the Gap Medical Interpreter training, the required Court Interpretation Skills Workshop offered by the Georgia Commission on Interpreters, and a 40-hour Legal Interpreter training course at Georgia State. Owning and operating his own business as a subcontractor accepting assignments from twelve different companies located in the Atlanta area and around the country allowed Sean to gain extensive hands-on experience in the legal, medical, & social services interpretation fields. Sean has traveled to Spain and worked as an escort interpreter in Costa Rica on multiple occasions. Sean has worked as a staff interpreter at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta and more recently for Seton Family of Hospitals in Austin, TX.
