Florida Chapter

Welcome to the Florida 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.

Maria Camila Pulido, IMIA Chair for Orlando City The IMIA is pleased to announce that Maria Camila Pulido is the IMIA Chair for Orlando City.
To reach her please email

Originally from Bogotá, Colombia, where Ms. Pulido studied Physical Therapy at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, she then moved to the United States in 2004. While attending the University Of Central Florida (UCF) pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Biology, she began working as a part-time translator and interpreter with companies like Language Line and Translation Station. While working as an interpreter and translator, she realized how passionate she was about helping others communicate effectively during medical encounters.

After graduating from UCF with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, Ms. Pulido took job at a firm temporarily, while searching for something related to her degree. During her time in this job, she was inspired by the book “A Singular Woman” by Janny Scott, a biography of Stanley Ann Dunham that included her passion for promoting micro-financing for entrepreneurs. Once finished reading, Ms. Pulido decided to quit her job to found Target Translations & Interpretations, LLC, a company committed to provide professional and certified interpreting and translation services in the medical and legal fields.
