Meet Your Instructor

Gloria brings her background as a doctor, her love for words as a translator, her experience as an interpreter and creates webinars that are fun and full of knowledge. Also, she’s the brain and sense of humor behind Medical Translation and Interpreting Crew, a Facebook group with over 7,200 members where she shares reliable resources and tips for new and not-so-new translators and interpreters.
Why? Because she believes that sharing is caring.

Things Our Happy Students Say...

We don’t like to brag about how awesome Blue Urpi classes are. So, we would rather let our happy students do the talking.

I have now taken 2 of Gloria's webinars. Both were incredibly informative, as well as engaging. One was on the best, most reliable online resources. The second was on Latino Culture. Since taking both classes, I have utilized the recommended sites and strategies. I look forward to taking more of Gloria's webinars; allowing me to add to my interpreter "bag of tricks."

Sandra Elena Terra

I have recently completed Gloria’s “¡Ay! The basics of pain” webinar. It is extremely useful to have Dr. Rivera’s knowledge as both a medical doctor and interpreter. The webinar was informative, detailed, and quite engaging. I plan on taking several of her webinars in the near future. Thank you! Highly recommended!

I really enjoy Gloria’s webinars. Just recently took the Cardiology one and learned a great deal from it. She gives background information besides the vocabulary, so you end up feeling you have gained understanding and confidence.”
