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.

    • Hello! My name is Reny, and I am searching for opportunities to practice ASL. I am hearing, and I am learning ASL as an independent study for school. I want to learn this language right, which is hard to do without another pair of eyes, so that is why I'm here. I am a novice in ASL, but I do already know some syntax, a handful of signs, and my alphabet, even if I do stumble a bit. I am looking forward to getting to know this community, and I am hoping I can be of assistance to others, as they are to me.
    • You can learn a lot by watching ASL speakers talk to each other. Pick a video and then try to imitate what they are saying and how they are saying it. It is important that there is more than one person in the video so you can see how they react and respond with turn taking. Please post a video that you would like to discuss, and then ask questions about everything. Eventually you will undersrand enough to not need to ask a lot of questions in future videos. Here is an example to the knid of video to study. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hRRw15weblc
