I graduated from Blooomsburg University as an American Sign Language Interpreting major with a concentration in Deaf Education. Afterwards I moved to Virginia to start my career. I have interpreted for various situations in MD, DC, and VA. I love my job.
In college I was on the executive board for the American Sign Language Interpreting club as well as SLED (Students Linked to the Education of the Deaf).
Last winter I went on a missionary trip to Haiti. There I taught American sign language classes and various sign language games to the people of Leveque. Leveque is a Deaf community in Haiti; they all get together in hopes to help one another recover from the earthquake. One nursing student came along and I was able to interpret her childcare class to the Deaf Haitians.
Three summers ago I also volunteered at Camp HERO (Here Everyone Really is One). This is a camp for Deaf and Hard of Hearing children. As well as taking care of the children I designed interactive lessons to promote unity, confidence, and fun among all the campers.
I also did a field experience for American Sign Language Interpreting. Here I was able to observe certified interpreters. I was very fortunate and gained a lot of experience working in an interpreting agency.
