advocacy & consulting

After spending countless hours studying, spending time with the deaf community, and continuing my education, I wanted to look for more ways to be able to make the most of my services.
 
I decided to bring my advocacy, creativity & messages of empowerment to the interpreting work.

Keeping in mind ADA laws, RID code of ethics, and the power I hold serving an often disenfranchised, intersectional population, I make it part of my mission to educate people on the need for accessibility and setting forth standards to facilitate that process, from end to end.

Some services I have provided: 

  • consulting school districts and government agencies regarding early intervention, IEP meetings and other educational Services for deaf and hard of hearing students
  • advocating for and connecting people and businesses to Deaf mentors, teachers and trainers
  • training professionals working directly with Deaf consumers in medical and educational settings
  • training and consulting businesses who want to hire interpreters to make their events and workplace more accessible
  • supporting local interpreters to empower themselves to do their best work through advocacy & workshops
  • volunteering for worthy causes that deaf americans deserve access to, including Pride and black lives matter events
  • mentoring newly trained interpreters according to our code of ethics as a practice profession. 

please contact me for consultation and resources.
