Sarah Wheeler has experienced the dangers of a sandstorm in Kuwait, a California earthquake, and skydiving from an airplane, and she never would have imagined that those adrenaline rushes would match what she feels daily when she goes to work as an interpreter. As a child of Deaf parents, she was assimilated to Deaf culture early on. But she continues to be humbled by how much there is to learn about American Sign language, Deaf culture, and the interpreting process. She is a nationally-certified interpreter with a license to interpret in North Carolina. Sarah Wheeler holds an bachelor’s degree in business management from Mt. Olive College. She also has a certificate in non-profit management from Duke Continuing Studies. While at Duke, she was invited to participate in Leadership Wayne County, where she developed an understanding of how different agencies collaborate together to provide social services. She decided to begin interpreting professionally and as she began working with the Deaf community her passion was ignited. Sarah Wheeler received her M.Ed. in Interpreter Pedagogy from Northeastern University in 2011. She seeks to share her wealth of knowledge and information, as well as learn from those who have so much experience in the field and culture.
Sarah is the author of the book "The Interpreter’s Journal" (Coming soon from Winkshop)
