Stacey Storme was born and raised in Colorado as a native bilingual in both ASL and English.

Currently, Stacey resides in Overland Park, KS with her incredible wife of 10 1/2 years, soul-searching son, 3 beautiful daughters, 2 loving dogs and 1 “stray” cat. During the school year she works with a great team at Johnson County Community College to help prepare students for entry into the stimulating and growing field of interpreting. She is also co-owner of Storme Consultants and practices interpreting whenever possible.
