"Kelly (Grzech) Henriquez is a certified Spanish medical interpreter in Richmond, Virginia. She attended Virginia Commonwealth University where she obtained her bachelor's degree in foreign language with a concentration in Spanish, and also completed their Spanish-English Translation and Interpretation (SETI) program. It was there that she also studied social work and further developed her passion for mental health advocacy, both for LEPs and interpreters.
Kelly has been working as both a freelance interpreter in both medical and mental health settings since 2016, and worked for VCU's Enhanced Teaching Practice clinic. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kelly has been working to produce interpreter educational materials, including trainings to address not only the lack of mental health training for medical interpreters, but also interpreter self-care resources. She is also a staunch advocate for LGBTQ language access, especially as it pertains to mental health."
