Caitlin Ramsey Wolford
Caitlin Ramsey Wolford, MA, NIC, graduated from Maryville College in Maryville, Tennessee in 2013 with a dual Bachelor of Arts degree in American Sign Language - English Interpreting and American Sign Language Deaf Studies with a minor in Psychology. After graduating from Maryville College, Caitlin continued her education at Gallaudet University by receiving her Master of Arts degree in American Sign Language - English Interpretation in 2015. Since graduation, Caitlin has worked with various interpreting agencies as a freelance interpreter in the DMV area with the goal of studying to specialize in the legal interpreting field in the future.
While working as an American Sign Language interpreter has been and will always be the perfect career for Caitlin, she definitely felt the need for more support in the field. In 2015, Caitlin started to brainstorm the idea of a mentorship program as a way to help interpreters who are new to the field. After two years of research, discussion, and lots of coffee, CORE Interpreters began. In July 2017, CORE had the first Kickoff Event for a pilot group including nine Mentors, nine Mentees, and four Coaches in Washington DC. CORE has seen much success since the start, and the mentorship program would not be possible without a team of interpreters behind the CORE vision. If you are an interpreter, and you would like to contribute to the field or to the community, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the vision.
