About Emily:
I have been involved with the Deaf community for over 25 years and interpreting professionally for 10 years. I was trained at Columbia College in Chicago where I completed the four year interpreter training program. I began my career working mostly in social service, mental health, medical, education, business, and theater settings. I have since expanded my work to include technical, government, and some legal settings. I am also fluent in French Sign Language (LSF) and can interpret between ASL, LSF, and English.
