I was introduced to BSL in 2001 by a wonderful Communication Support Worker (CSW). She encouraged me to learn the basics of the language, took me to Deaf Club and my signing journey began with a BSL Level 1 Qualification. Over 20 years later that CSW is now a Qualified Interpreter, but what about my signing? For me there have been major changes in my career, my business and my personal life but my love of signing is still there!
After recently navigating 8 formal exams in 2022 I successfully gained my BSL Level 4 Qualification!
I am now studying for BSL Level 6 with a wonderful Deaf Tutor in London
I have over 25 years of corporate training delivery experience which I now use to deliver Continuing Professional Development workshops to Early Years settings and the Education Sector
I also spend a couple a days of week working in a local mainstream school supporting Deaf pupils with BSL
