I am the Accessible Technology Training Consultant in the Disability Programs and Resource Center. My position at SF State was created as an outgrowth of the Accessible Technology Initiative. I am an alumnus of the Department of Instructional Technology at SF state. Of special interest to me is seeing individuals, our campus, and the CSU, come alive with understanding about accessibility. Delivering and developing training has been a thread woven and strengthened throughout my working life.
My background and love of sign language led me to study at Berkeley Community College and then apply to the Interpreter Training Program at Ohlone College in Fremont. I am a certified American Sign Language Interpreter and have worked in business, medical and post-secondary educational settings for many years.
My favorite place to volunteer is Deaf Hope located in Oakland. Every year they host a fundraiser called Glimmer of Hope to raise funds to provide service for domestic violence survivors. I have been honored to contribute the skills I learned and have honed since art school in Brooklyn.
