CI/CT, QMHI, Ed:K-12, PhD
Christina Healy's interest in languages began at a young age as her family traveled internationally throughout her childhood.
She earned her BS in ASL/English Interpreting from Western Oregon University and her MA and PhD in Linguistics from Gallaudet University.
While she is fluent in English and ASL, Christina has taken courses in Italian Sign Language, Israeli Sign Language, Spanish, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. She enjoys "geeking out" with friends she has met along the way who use Arabic, Swahili, Mandarin, German, and other European spoken and signed languages.
Christina finds that a linguistic approach to language enhances her interpreting work and reflection. She enjoys sharing and learning alongside her colleagues, consumers, and other community members.
