Caron is a sign language interpreter with over 20 years of experience working in London and Devon, both in community and professional settings.
Caron qualified as an interpreter in 2002 and is a qualified A1 assessor. Caron trains, assesses, mentors and supervises interpreters and is constantly seeking ways to make our work open for discussion.
Caron says: “I have experience interpreting in community settings and working with Deaf professionals, have presented and been published at national and international conferences, train interpreters and have supervision skills, so a bit of a mixed bag – but that’s what comes of getting older! At the heart of what I do and believe is a sense of social justice and equality. I strongly believe we need to work with both Deaf and hearing professionals to promote the rights of any individual and our ethical reasoning is key to the promotion of our profession. I am a proponent of the practice professional model and see that as key to our success. Aside from that I live in glorious countryside with my fab hubby and cats – have found myself quite liking running as well as practicing yoga and love a good read in front of our wood burner. A nice glass of wine with friends goes down quite well too:)”
