Amy Free

Associate Lecturer
Teaching & Learning

Amy A. Free, CI & CT, has been a working interpreter for two decades. Her passion for science makes post-secondary and medical interpreting her two favorite settings, and she also enjoys community, conference, and performance interpreting. Amy has contributed to RID Views several times, most recently about the reality that “everything is prep” for the work on an interpreter. Her teaching experience includes coaching, mentoring, and internship supervision for interpreters, and leading water exercise classes for hearing and Deaf participants.

Amy’s BS degree is from UW-Madison, her MS degree from Canisius College, and ITP at UWM in-between. She is an ardent practitioner of lifelong learning and follows the motto: Seek to understand. When not interpreting you can find her reading four things at once, observing Nature, or baking a new recipe.
