About Me

I first began my journey into the Deaf Community in 1990s when I starting to learn British Sign Language, taught by a local Deaf Tutor.  

For 15 years I worked in Design/Print/Publishing, however after completing BSL Levels 1/2/3, I began working as a Communicator with Deaf students at a local college (2005).

In 2008, I began the degree programme BA (Hons) Deaf Studies, Communication Support & Education (Middx) based at City Lit, qualifying as a Trainee Interpreter (2011).

 

In 2012, I completed the NVQ Level 6 Diploma in BSL/English Interpreting, becoming a fully qualified and Registered Sign Language Interpreter (RSLI).

 

I continue to develop my skills and knowledge by regularly undertaking Continuous Professional Development.  In 2021, I began to study the Masters programme (part time) at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, MSc Advancing Practice in Signed Language Interpreting, led by Dr Rachel Mapson. 

At present, I work across various domains including Social Services (Sensory, Safeguarding, Child Protection, Case Conferences etc), Higher Education, Charity, Community, Training, Conference/Expo, Employment, Theatre, Visitor Tours and Legal (solicitors, safeguarding, CAB, out of court).

I offer a professional, flexible and friendly service and I value feedback from the Deaf Community. I continue to develop my knowledge and skills and welcome any queries.  I can undertake both face to face and remote bookings.
