Martha Garcia

Martha is a Spanish language interpreter.

Martha Garcia was born in the very late sixties south of the Tropic of Cancer in the Mexican town of San Juan de Los Lagos. She is the proud mother of twins, and has two younger sisters and seven younger brothers.

Since she was a student at Modesto Junior College, she decided to major in Journalism, and wrote for the Pirate’s Log, as well as several Spanish language weekly publications, and participated in an internship program for the local Spanish language TV station, Univision 19. Martha also worked for two Spanish language radio stations before transferring to Sacramento State, where she majored in Humanities, with a double Major in Italian Studies. She holds a Master’s Degree in Spanish, and is a State Certified Interpreter. She’s very happy to be able to work in her fields of interest, news and languages: she’s a part-time Spanish instructor and translator, and is one of the interpreters for the SAP service in Good Day Sacramento

When she is not being entertained by her very funny children, Martha enjoys writing short stories, reading (although she’s much better doing the latter), investigating and documenting her family tree, jewelry making, foreign films, county fairs, homemade meals and being surrounded by people with a sense of humor. She loves romance languages, music, gypsy folklore, Charrer�a, the Mexican national sport, rivers, gardenias, pomegranates and the color green.
