StreetLeverage is delighted to announce that Jean A. Miller has joined the team as a Lead Content Editor. Jean will be responsible for overseeing the editing and publishing of weekly posts on www.streetleverage.com.
StreetLeverage is widely known for its commitment to curating and publishing insightful articles and relevant content on topics related to the field of sign language interpreting. Jean’s addition to the StreetLeverage endeavor will reinforce that commitment and provide opportunity for StreetLeverage to expand its platform to promote the work of telling and redefining the story of the sign language interpreter.
As an early fan of StreetLeverage, Jean is excited to join the StreetLeverage team and to serve the profession. She has worked as a professional sign language interpreter since 1989 and holds a Certificate of Transliteration and Certificate of Interpretation from the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc. Jean’s work has covered the gamut, including K12 settings, post-secondary education, community settings, and experience as an interpreter coordinator in a university setting. Currently, she is working in the VRS industry. Career highlights include attending the TDF sponsored “Interpreting for the Theatre” workshop in New York City in 1999 and 2005.
She extends special thanks to Hank Stack and the Deaf Communities in Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA for generously welcoming her into the community. She is also eternally grateful for all the mentors she has had as a result of her journey.
