WHAT I DO
My curriculum focuses on STRENGTHS in your work and the language nuances that will enhance the language options for the interpreters. Working with my mentees has morphed into a training process. I am developing opportunities to create a wealth of awareness and to create the path to being that PROFESSIONAL you desire to be. It requires your commitment to you!
We are all growing – still growing! Every workshop I teach goes under a complete reconstruction because of MY experience and YOUR comments regarding what you learned. Nothing I do stays the same – I think that is why I love presenting so much. My mentees and students cause me to go deeper into the awareness and understanding of ASL linguistic skills and the process of becoming an interpreter that honors the desires of the Deaf client before you.
The Deaf wrapped their arms around me for these most wonderful seven years. Each of them had their own LOVE for language and opened the door to the ART of ASL! As life does have its twist and turns, our group started accepting work outside our area and slowly we drifted into new opportunities. I was given the LOVE of language and the communities “inner” heart-caring.

“I joined May 2019 as an interpreter. Bonnie Faye shares a lot of info but no pressure to learn them all. Learn as we go. I felt so safe, loved, and encouraged by not only Bonnie Faye, but my classmates. I feel supportive and being able to ask any kinds of questions.” – Diana
“I have been a three-time participant in the six-month long Mentorshop series, each time gleaning new ways to approach my work as a hearing sign language interpreter. Her years of experience and thirst for knowledge instigated deep conversations. During sessions, I have analyzed the nuances of native and heritage language users, presented on current industry topics, and strengthened my interpreting work alongside Deaf interpreters. Through her mentoring, I have looked deeper into the linguistic quality of my work. Bonnie has inspired me to shine brighter personally and professionally.” – Desiree
