Associate Professor - American Sign Language, English Interpreting

I identify as a native Hoosier, a second-language learner of ASL, an interpreter, and an advocate of social justice for the culturally and non-culturally deaf communities. I grew up in New Haven, Indiana and spent most of my professional life in South Bend, Indiana. I am passionate about introducing a world of interpreting to students that includes a belief for excellence in the work because of the high regard I have for those we serve. I bring two decades of teaching and interpreting experience to MC along with my national certification (CI/CT) and a particular enthusiasm for seeing my graduates realize their dreams!
