I am a graduate of Caldwell University where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Media Studies. I also plan on pursuing my Associate's Degree in American Sign Language Interpreting, to obtain my certification as an American Sign Language Interpreter. Since graduation, I have been working for Babe Ruth League, INC as the National Softball Commissioner. In this position, I coordinate events for youth softball programs across the globe through grassroots initiatives and tournaments; having worked in youth sports for over seven years as a coach, mentor, and board member. I am very passionate about creating an excitement for learning for students of all ages! I currently tutor American Sign Language exclusively. Throughout college, I worked as a tutor in this subject and have studied the material extensively for over eight years. I am very passionate about this because I believe that everyone should have a basic understanding of American Sign Language for communicating with people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. The more that we open our minds to the knowledge of understanding this wonderful language, the more we can understand how to relate to those around us. I like to engage my students by using music to translate lyrics into Sign and encourage them to increase their vocabulary skills on a daily basis. I have been taught by both deaf and hearing professors and I make a point to stay updated on signs that have become outdated or updated. In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities such as running, rock climbing, swimming and cycling. I myself continue to practice and learn American Sign Language to grow in my knowledge of the subject.
