Wanda is a CODA and a nationally certified ASL interpreter hailed from Indiana. Her professional interpreting career began in 2015 where she worked in VRS and community jobs part time in Denver, CO. After joining the conservation corps as ASL interpreter and crew leader in summer of 2017, her career trajectory shifted and she was inspired to move to Washington, D.C. to pursue interpreting full time. Wanda established Trail Blazing Interpreters, an outdoor specialized ASL interpreting agency in 2021. In her free time Wanda enjoys making crochet blankets, training her cat, and doing as many outdoor activities as possible.
Sam is the seventh generation of a large, vibrant Deaf family in Maine’s great woods. After obtaining a Master’s degree in Outdoor Leadership from Saybrook University and National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), Sam joined CorpsTHAT’s team, intending to build a bridge to connect the Deaf community and the outdoors through education, recreation, and careers. Sam is passionate about creating equitable and inclusive spaces in the outdoors for Deaf and Hard of Hearing folks. During her free time, Sam enjoys climbing, trail running, skiing, and backpacking.
