I grew up in the San Fernando Valley, California. After graduating from Los Angeles Pierce College with an Associate of Arts in Sign Language Interpreting, I worked for 15 years at the National Center on Deafness at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). While there, I received training as a mentor and diagnostician and participated in the Pep-Net West Video Outreach Program as a long distance mentor. I moved to Tulsa in 1999, and since then I have graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary studies from the University of Oklahoma.
After 16 years working full or part-time for Tulsa Community College, I have recently returned to private practice and video relay interpreting. I run a small cottage industry mentoring fellow interpreters via Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangout using techniques learned while working at CSUN. I love music, mime, my family, my pets, computers, Disneyland and writing, not necessarily in that order.
In the stories that I write, I hope to provide a place for powerful women to recognize themselves. I was and continue to be inspired by my mother, who passed away in 2008 and who kept standing up for what she thought was right until her last breath. May I learn to be as strong, and inspire others to do the same.
