As a Senior Sign Langauge Interpreter, I interpret in a variety of classes for students attending CPCC.
Consult with Instructors on the course objectives and goals. Promote deaf awareness and cooperative relationships within the student body and faculty.
Educational Background:
Central Piedmont Community College Alumni of 1993 with an AAS degree in Interpreter Training.
My interests are varied. Because of my profession, anything dealing with deafness or sign language is at the top of the list. I will add traveling, studying cultures, deep discussions on any topic and reading. I enjoy a good crime solving tv show and old musicals. I enjoy my pets. I have three dogs, a yorkie, havanese, and an American cocker. All are very active and fill my life with laughter.
Other Information:
Before coming to CPCC, I worked for sixteen years in the K-12 setting as a sign language interpreter. I am a member of my profession's national organization, Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, RID. I serve on the boards of our state and local chapers, NCRID and 5 Points-RID. We host workshops to promote continued learning among my colleagues and maintain licensure.
