(Hard of Hearing Member)
(term expires 7-1-17)
What Serving on the Council means to me:
Serving on the Council enables me to stay informed and up to date with a wide range of issues that affect the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Communities throughout Wisconsin. I am also hopeful that serving on the council will enable me to also promote specific initiatives that will help members of this Community.
Goals for the Council and for the deaf, hard of hearing and deaf-blind community:
I would like us to develop specific initiatives through the Department and the Governor's Office that help members of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community as well as, help inform people of the needs and concerns of our Community. I would like the Council to promote better use of Hearing Loop technology beginning with consumer education by audiologists and use of Hearing Loop systems in meeting and performing centers throughout the state of Wisconsin. I would also like to see better awareness of the the needs of the deaf and hard of hearing community in call phases of our daily lives.
