WHO WE ARE
People Passionate About Communication
“Our mission is to connect businesses and organizations to the people they serve, by bridging the language and cultural divide”
Jeannette Houchens | President & Founder
FOUNDED ON PASSION & PROFESSIONALISM
HIT Services was founded in 2010 by Jeannette Houchens, a certified Spanish interpreter with a business background.
Jeannette started her language career in her native country of Colombia, in 1997, and her passion for excellence in interpretation and translation motivated her to become an active part of the interpreting profession.
Early on while working as a freelance interpreter, Jeannette recognized the crucial need for better language services that combine linguistic expertise with cultural and diversity awareness. Now a South Carolina Certified Court Interpreter as well as a Certified Medical Interpreter (CMI-Spanish), Jeannette leads an experienced team geared not only to help providers meet legal requirements, but to provide a solution that increases effective communication, and bridges the cultural divide.
