The Clinical Programs recently welcomed a new Program Assistant. Azucena “Susy” Espinoza is the newest member to join the UNC School of Law Clinical Programs team. Susy started in June 2015 and is one of our two Bilingual Program Assistants. She is a fluent Spanish speaker who assists with interpreting and translating as well as with the daily administrative demands of the Clinic.
Susy is originally from California and moved to North Carolina in 1998. She currently resides in Carrboro with her sister, Berenice, and her dog, Bruno. She has spent the past seven years working as an interpreter supervisor, administrative assistant, and clinical assistant for the Chatham County Health Department. Throughout her employment with Chatham County, Susy received recognition for her excellent internal and external customer service. During the 2011-2012 fiscal year, Susy was part of the first team of participants from Chatham County to complete the Public Health Quality Improvement Program from the North Carolina Center for Public Health Quality.
Susy has extensive interpreting and translation experience. She loves working with the community and her bi-cultural background is beneficial to understanding the problems that Latinos face today in the United States. Presently, Susy has been working on fulfilling her dream of earning a college degree and is enrolled at Alamance Community College where she has been invited to join the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society as a result of her academic achievement.
We are delighted to welcome Susy as the newest staff member of the Clinical Programs team at Carolina Law!
