I am Deaf person and native from California, born and raised in the Bay area. I graduated from California School for the Deaf, Fremont. I have been in New Mexico for fourteen years now. I am one of New Mexico’s Deaf interpreters working to create more quality access and break communication barriers for the deaf community. I interpret in many fields from politics, health care, education and law. I have 3 educational backgrounds, a BA recreational degree, Masters degree in sports administration from the University of New Mexico & I attended an outdoor leadership program in Green field, Massachusetts that included a gamete of outdoor certifications like backpacking, kayaking, etc. I am a well experienced world traveler, I love adventure and new and exciting opportunities. I love anything that produces that feeling of adrenaline. I have a love for many different arenas in sports and work, one experience that I really value is bringing home a medal from both summer and winter deaf olympics. I completed the half iron man two times in my life and am always seeking a new thrill and challenge from what is to come in life.
