I am the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) coordinator and professor of American Sign Language (ASL).

In addition to teaching ASL classes, as a Community Coordinator, I have the only Lion’s Affordable Hearing Aid Project at DCC which is also the only hearing aid project at any community college in VCCS.  I also provide Outreach Services for the Virginia Department for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (VDDHH) which has a telecommunication program that provides telephones and audible systems for people who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.  I am also a Nationally Certified Interpreter with a NIC-Advanced Level through the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf.


As the ADA Coordinator, I work with students at DCC who have a reported disability. Accommodations are provided for students with disabilities and in order to receive accommodation services, the appropriate documentation must be provided by the student. Also, additional medical documentation may be requested if needed. Once the student with disabilities is registered with the ADA office, letters of accommodation are provided, which are given to the student's instructors. The letters include specific accommodations, which are provided by the instructor.


My interest and work with people who are Deaf began at the age of four when my babysitter was Deaf.  I attended Gallaudet University for ASL and interpreter training.  I thoroughly enjoy working with people who are Deaf and hard of hearing and I also especially enjoy teaching ASL classes and watching my students develop their ASL skills!
