everyday kindness

Because this is a season for thankfulness, community, and family, I wanted to share an essay that I wrote years ago. Though not published, it is a story that keeps me energized everyday: Being Mindful to Everyday Kindness: Untold Stories about Aaron Ripkowski and the University of Oklahoma [11/15/2019]


I received my J.D. degree from the College of Law, University of Oklahoma in Spring, 2019.

I was also nominated by the OU College of Law to be inducted into the National Order of Scribes. The National Order of Scribes was created in 2007 by Scribes as an honorary organization to recognize graduating law students who excel in legal writing. 


Hsieh, E. (2016). Bilingual Health Communication: Working with interpreters in cross-cultural care. New York, NY: Routledge.

With this book, my goal is to present a new theoretical framework related to bilingual health care and connect the latest findings from multiple disciplines. This volume presents future research directions that promise development for both theory and practice in the field.

"Highly Recommended" and included in the "Top 75 Community College Titles"* collection from Choice Review, American Library Association! (Feb 2017) *The best of all the titles appropriate for two-year colleges reviewed
