I first became involved with working with deaf people after a career change in 1999. I passed my BSL level 1 & 2, and became interested in developing my lipspeaking skills. I passed the ‘old’ level two in 2006, and was a member of the Class of 2011, qualifying as a level three lipspeaker early in 2012.
I now work freelance as a lipspeaker.
