Hello, I am from Upstate New York and became interested in Americans Sign Language when I was young as my friend”s dad is Deaf. In 2003 I started my graduate studies in Deaf Education. I started really seeking out learning the language and the culture I have attended many workshops and events to gain the knowledge I need to be part of this amazing culture and community. I have taught Deaf and hearing children of all ages along with their families to sign. I currently teach Pharmacy and Health Science students at a local college. I am a passionate teacher who is creative, flexible, patient, and easy going. I am so excited to be able to share my knowledge and passion for ASL and the culture with you and to assist you in signing fluently and being able to have a conversation with in the Deaf Community. Most importantly is that you have fun in the process of learning ASL which is such a beautiful language and culture.
