Amanda grew up in a hearing world with no direct contact with the deaf and hard of hearing population. As a visual person, she decided to enroll in American Sign Language courses while working on her bachelor’s degree and fell in love with the beauty of ASL.
Several years after graduating, she applied for and was offered the Webmaster position at a Deaf School. Being immersed in a deaf and hard of hearing environment, working with and around deaf and hard of hearing individuals each day, has opened Amanda’s eyes to the struggles deaf and hard of hearing individuals often face.
And thus, ComPassion Consulting was born. In an effort to help educate and empower industries and individuals to provide communication access, and be caring, compassionate, and kind to all.
