As a new interpreter just entering the field, I was at first overwhelmed with all the possible avenues I might pursue. I was curious about the different capacities in which an interpreter might choose to serve. This desire for a diversity of experience led me to ASLIS. I have been given amazing opportunities to engage in medical appointments, college graduations, school sessions and much more. I have come to respect and appreciate the wisdom, professionalism, and kindness of every interpreter with whom I have had the pleasure of working!
I began this journey through the Carlstrom Interpreting Department at North Central University. I graduated this past May with a Bachelor’s Degree in American Sign Language Interpreting. When I have completed my internship with ASLIS, it is my hope to find work in a school as an educational interpreter while preparing for the National test. I also have a passion for theatrical interpreting, and hope to become involved in that discipline. In both arenas, it is my goal to grow in my skills and offer the best services I am able to both the Deaf and Hearing worlds.
