I was introduced to Deaf culture and language as child by a Deaf cousin.  I have been interpreting for over 25 years in the capital region, as well as, Massachusetts and Vermont.  I work part-time for the Massachusetts Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (MCDHH) as a staff interpreter.  I have worked in a variety of community settings including business, education, theater/performing arts and currently working as a legal interpreter for the courts, police, child protective agencies, lawyers, and mediation services.  I am committed to providing quality professional and ethical service, as well as, continued professional development.
