GOLETA’S PEOPLE FINDER: As one of the three columnists writing independent.com’s weekly Goleta Grapevine column, Silvia Uribe brings a unique perspective to the town where she’s lived for 10 years with her husband and two daughters. “I am a communicator by nature,” explained the professional interpreter and translator who originally hails from Mexico City, “so I just love communicating with people and showing who we are in Goleta and what a wonderful city it is.” This week, Uribe, who likes to “underline how interesting we can all be just given the opportunity to explain what we do and care about,” profiles forensic scientist Dianne Burns, at independent.com/goleta.
