Sign Language interpreter
I have owned a trucking company and can drive a semi.
I once interpreted for 2 individuals who were deaf but used different forms of sign language and could not talk to each other (I sign 3 forms of sign language).
I coordinate a project for BVU with Teach for America - supervising (and grading) more than 1000 academic credits per year.
