Introduction: Brandi

Hi everyone! My name is Brandi. I've been interpreting just short of 10 years. I hold state and national certification. I work in the St. Louis metro area. I've worked in almost every setting you can imagine, with the exception of VRS or VRI.  Currently I am a staff interpreter for a large hospital system. I received my Associates and Bachelor degrees in Sign Language. I learned the alphabet and how to sign Jingle Bell Rock when I was in 6th grade. I always remembered those signs. After working for the government for about 4 years doing accounting, I realized I wasn't happy. This led me to get a catalog for the local community college. There it was! A degree in sign language. One class and I was hooked. 

I love seeing all the people on this page trying to learn sign language. My biggest piece of advice is to find a Deaf friend/ mentor. There is nothing that compares to learning from a native user. 

Feel free to reach out with any questions! I look forward to meeting many of you.

    • I can't believe I just found this awesome website .... love everything I see on it!
    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
