Donna Flanders graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a degree in Interpretation for the Deaf in 1991 and immediately relocated to Georgia to become an educational interpreter in the metro-Atlanta area. In 1999, Donna left the
full-time workforce to expand her career working in the community. As an independent contractor, Donna has worked in a variety of settings mostly in Georgia and Florida, but also across the States and abroad. Donna has taught numerous professional enhancement workshops specifically designed for ASL learners and working interpreters and has also had the pleasure of presenting at several RID national-level conferences. For 14 years, Donna served on staff at the Atlanta Area School for the Deaf in Clarkston, Georgia, interpreting for the staff and
faculty, but also worked on special interpreted projects related to the education and language nutrition of Deaf children. Donna holds a bachelor’s degree in Sociology, a master’s degree in Interpreting Pedagogy, national certification as an interpreter and transliterator, and can currently be found working full-time as an interpreter educator for the University of North Florida, Jacksonville.
