CMP Coordinator Tara Troup

Tara Troup is product of the Pacific Northwest having grown up in Washington and now residing in Oregon. She graduated from Western Oregon University’s interpreting program in 2009 and has since been working in various settings in the field. After primarily working post-secondary then K-12, she has now happily settled into Portland and been working the last 2 years as a full time freelance interpreter with some time in VRS.
Tara’s goal in being involved with ORID as secretary is to garner more involvement from the greater interpreting community of Oregon with a more specific desire to work towards developing mentorship opportunities for new interpreters. There is a wealth of knowledge and expertise from seasoned interpreters that could be utilized to safely usher new graduates into the field.
Tara is hopeful to see more mentoring happen to both support the profession as well as instill confidence for consumers. During her off time Tara enjoys hiking the beautiful outdoors that Oregon has to offer and tasting the many delicious microbrews produced locally.
