American sign language is my passion and connecting people is my purpose. I’m humbled to serve both the Deaf and hearing communities through ASL interpreting services, ASL training, mentoring, volunteer work, and active d/Deaf/ HoH advocacy. Sign Language was my first language because my mother and three younger siblings are all profoundly deaf. At a time when there were no laws enacted to accommodate the deaf and hard of hearing, I saw the daily struggles my family members endured. Now that my deaf nieces are growing up, I know it is my duty to help make society a better place with plenty of opportunities for them!
