My name is Jasmine. I am a registered signed language interpreter; graduated from Douglas College. I live and work in the Okanagan.
I have had the opportunity to work in many different areas through free-lance, and have started working with the school district this year. It has been a pleasure getting to know the community here in the Okanagan and growing through the various opportunities it has provided.
Hello Everyone, I have 30 years of experience interpreting for clients who are Deaf, Deaf/Blind, hard of hearing and those who use oral interpretation. I do conference calls for those who live in remote locations. I freelance in various settings and am available to work in the Quesnel, Williams Lake, and Prince George communities. I specialize in educational, medical and vocational interpretation. I graduated from the Grant MacEwan Community College Interpreter Training Program in 1987.

I grew up in Langley, BC and after graduating high school I did a lot of travelling around Europe. I even lived in London, England for 1 year.
My decision to start my journey as a sign language interpreter was from my childhood experience with Deaf and hard of hearing children. I went to an elementary school where mainstreaming was popular, I had about 5 Deaf students in my class who I then became friends with. Twenty years later, I could still use the basic signs that I had learned as a child and loved being able to use them to communicate with people. To have that connection with someone really motivated me to continue to learn about the language and become skilled in this line of work.
I have now completed the Douglas College Program of Sign Langauage Interpretation and am excited to be a part of the Deaf community.
