Yara Lopez was born in Mexico, D.F., and lived there for the first two years of her life until her family migrated to the United States.
Raised in Parlier, California, Yara grew up in an environment where education and giving back to the community became an essential part of her everyday life. With both mother and father being involved in the Parlier school system’s Si Se Puede Program, Yara learned about her culture and held on to her traditions. Yara continued to volunteer in the community and became heavily involved in academic school programs.
Yara worked in management and Human Resource positions while attending the University of FresnoState’s Psychology program. After her daughter, Kairi, Yara enrolled at Reedley College. She completed the Health Care Interpretation program.
Yara plans to finish her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and continue her education in the Spanish language and learn ASL to further contribute to giving back to the community. Her passion for helping others and bridging the gap between non-English, non-Spanish-speaking individuals led her to pursue a career in interpreting. Yara’s work ethic and motivation are inspirational; Fox Interpreting Inc. is thrilled to have Yara on their team serving as Human Resources/Office Manager and Spanish Interpreter.
