Hello! I have worked as a staff sign language interpreter at the Student Accessibility Center since August 2007. I started my studies at Northcentral Technical College in Wausau, WI, and after obtaining my Associates degree in Educational Interpreting, I enrolled in the American Sign Language Studies program at UWM. I joined the SAC department as a Limited Time Employee (LTE) interpreter and, in conjunction, continued my academics. In May of 2007, I graduated from UWM with my Bachelors of Science in Exceptional Education, focused in American Sign Language Studies.
