About me: I feel so fortunate to have the career in the field I wished for when I was in high school. With the support and love from many Deaf and hearing friends and colleagues, I have enjoyed every venue I have worked in.
When I have free time, I am an avid birder! We are fortunate to live in an area with many wonderful birds and I enjoy birding year round. Several years ago, my husband Jay and I travelled to the Falkland Islands and stood among 100,00 penguins!
