With over 15 deaf relatives, it is understandable why Cheryl became an interpreter. She was born to Deaf parents and American Sign Language is her first language. She grew up in the Denver area, and considers many of the deaf community “her family.” She has been interpreting professionally for over 35 years, holds the RID CI and CT certifications, and is also legally qualified in the state of Colorado. She is the mother of five grown children, and the grandmother of three beautiful grandchildren. Her hobbies include spending time with her family and friends, traveling, camping, and pretty much anything to do with the outdoors.
