A Bit About Me

I grew up in the beautiful state of Kentucky. Practically born on stage, I started singing and performing when I was only 18 months old and have been involved in performance and Theater ever since. I was first exposed to American Sign Language through interactions with students at the Kentucky School for the Deaf. After graduating from Asbury University with a degree in Media Communications, with a double emphasis in production and performance, I entered and graduated from the Interpreter Training Program at Eastern Kentucky University. I received my National Certification in 2010 and I have been interpreting full time for over 13 years.
