As a new member to the Deaf Action Center (DAC) Board from Fort Worth, TX, I work as a state and nationally certified interpreter with over 20 years experience. My full time professional interpreting career started as a staff interpreter with DAC in the early 90s. I have maintained my relationship with DAC through the years as a volunteer and contract interpreter. I am also active in several professional organizations and have experience in leadership, mentoring, and interpreter education. I am looking forward to utilizing the breadth of my skills and experience to support the continued growth of Deaf Action Center and its mission.
