After receiving bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work, Susan worked as a director of Easter Seals Camps in Wisconsin and Colorado for six years. While supervising a deaf woman, she fell in love with American Sign Language again, having learned the language as a young girl. She enrolled in FRCC’s Interpreter Preparation Program and graduated in 1997. Since graduating, Susan has worked as a freelance interpreter in many areas, including medical, legal, mental health, religious, educational, performing arts, platform, and video relay. She has taught at FRCC since 2004 and joined the IPP as a full-time faculty member in January 2011. See this faculty member featured in the FRCC Blog.
