A note from Shonna:

When I received my Master level, friends of mine started referring to me as “Shoda”…a combination of Shonna and Yoda since Yoda is a Jedi Master. In the fun spirit of this, I was given a green laser pointer to present my seminars with since Yoda’s light saber is green. I’d like to do the same for those who achieve a Master level after attending my workshop. Contact me to claim your green laser pointer and it will be specially engraved with NIC MASTER and personalized with your name. That way, you can feel like you have your own Yoda Master light saber! Check back often to see the latest NIC Masters!


I really didn't know what I was getting into until I went to Shonna's workshop. It was a stimulating, challenging and eye-opening experience. I left with a comprehensive understanding of not just the NIC Performance test, but the Interpreting profession as a whole. Shonna's passion for excellence in professionalism rubbed off on all of us. I am confident that if it wasn't for that I would have never passed the test, let alone reach Master level. Follow her system and you will get results, it's just that simple!

"I took Shonna's Master the NIC Performance workshop after having passed the written---and having close to 20 years in the field as an interpreter.  I feel like this workshop took those years of experience and helped me to categorize and distill that knowledge into something that was a more clear representation of critical thinking about the ethics of our work, the impact we have on the many people we work with and how we can shape our decisions to result in positive outcomes all around.  The breakdown of the domains (the "Magee Method") was immensely helpful to me and the area where I think many of us struggle when trying to articulate the decisions we make about our work.  I would recommend this workshop to both seasoned interpreters and new ITP graduates as well."

Studying for my NIC was probably one of the toughest things I have ever had to do. As a CODA I was getting by with freelance work not having to be certified. When I moved to Alabama, I was in for a rude awaking and had to be certified to do any work.  I started taking workshops right away and was in two different classes to "learn" how to interpret which was exactly what I needed and equally important.  It wasn't until I took Shonna's workshop that I knew I could tie it all together.  Passing the written part of the NIC was the part of the workshop I really wanted to go to especially because I am a terrible test taker. The way Shonna made you learn the material was awesome.  I never approached studying that way.  I felt so comfortable and READY.  The Interview part of the workshop was exactly what I needed.  That workshop was amazing.  I learned what was expected of me and how I had to meet those expectations.  I would suggest this workshop to EVERYONE AND ANYONE that is wanting their NIC.  She shows you how to become a NIC Master.  Don't deviate. It’s worth it. I swear! It truly is a magic formula.

When I [first] took the NIC performance, I hadn't taken Shonna's workshop, and received a passing score at the NIC level. After taking Shonna's workshop, I decided to test again to see if I could get a higher score, and I passed with a NIC: Master! Shonna's approach for the interview obviously works like a charm! Thanks for everything, Shonna!

"The interview is such an integral part of the NIC process. Shonna's "Master the NIC" workshop definitely played a huge part in preparing me for the interview portion of the test. It's also a great way to brush up on the CPC, even if you are already certified. Highly recommended!"

Shonna is a NIC: Master and a Master workshop presenter. I attended one of her NIC Interview preparation workshops this spring, took the NIC test on June 13th and 4 weeks later received my results, NIC: Master. I feel fortunate to have had Shonna's guidance and support as I prepared for the test. Her formula really works! If you are considering taking the NIC test don't pass up the opportunity to attend one of Shonna's workshops. After which you will have the knowledge and confidence to do well on the test. I couldn't have done it without her.

I took my test on June 6th, 2009. Three weeks and a day later I received my results...a NIC: Master! I absolutely could not have done this without Shonna's workshops or her continuous support and encouragement. Her workshop works and is worth every penny. I recommend this workshop to anyone and everyone who wants to pass this test. The workshop is fun, energetic, exciting, and far from what you would expect from a workshop. I studied her format and applied it to my test, and the end results were evident that her format and what she does is the real deal. I cannot thank Shonna enough for what she has done for me!

Shonna is a NIC: Master and a Master workshop presenter. I The attainment of the NIC Master is a definite possibility for the professional interpreter. The information and materials presented in Shonna's two day Master the NIC workshop provides an excellent preparatory foundation for the Interview component of the Performance exam. The workshop includes numerous opportunities for independent and group study, one on one Q & A, and allows for in depth discussion of the features necessary to obtain a moderate to high level test ranking by a rater of your performance.

Shonna's workshop was fun, supportive, direct, and informative. I gained a fresh appreciation for our professional code of conduct and the legal implications of our decision-making. The rubric information for the interview portion was thorough and well-rounded and I felt clear about what was expected by the RID. After Shonna's workshop I felt prepared, confident, and excited to take the NIC exam.

"I feel very lucky to have found Shonna's workshop Master the NIC Interview! She took a lot of confusing information and made it easily understandable. The practical tips for structuring answers to ethical questions was the key for me to get NIC Master. I don't think I would have gotten Master status without taking this workshop!!! Thanks again Shonna!!!"
