Welcome to the Wisconsin Chapter of the IMIA. The IMIA's goal is for all IMIA Chapters to flourish to meet all the needs of the members of each region. While the IMIA is international it believes in the 'Think Global, Act Local' motto. We will have periodic conference calls to allow members in this region to network and find ways to advance the profession together in the region. Please email your representative with ideas, issues, and topics that you think should be discussed. The IMIA believes that organizing an IMIA Symposium each year in each state should be a key goal of the Chapter. If you are willing to volunteer to assist, please let your representative know.

The IMIA is pleased to announce that Shawna Stevenoski is the IMIA State Chapter Chair for Wisconsin. Please feel free to contact her at IMIAWisconsin@imiaweb.org.
Shawna Stevenoski brings 22 years of experience in training, business administration, education, and interpreting to the business community. After earning degrees in English and Spanish from the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph , MN , she worked as an ELL instructor and Administrator in Mexico City , Mexico where she lived in the campo militar for ten years before returning to the US as a professional trainer and interpreter.
In 2005 Shawna became a Wisconsin Certified Court Interpreter and in 2010 a Certified Medical Interpreter. She owns and operates Bilingual Training Consultants, LLC which supports translating, interpreter training and multi-cultural learning combined with the need to better understand and educate our communities on literacy and language issues. She actively interprets in the seven county area courts and local hospital. Additionally she works with local bilingual youth on a specialized program to teach interpreting/translating skills and vocational opportunities.
Through her experiences in working with learners with illiteracy issues, including her disabled adult son, she has gained compassion and understanding of how there is more to language than just words. She volunteers and partners with the Jefferson County Literacy Council, People Against Domestic Abuse, and the Jefferson School District’s Special Needs Program.
