Lindsey Udy Off To Different Pastures


It is with a large measure of sadness that NIS says goodbye to Lindsey Udy, who served as  Executive Assistant since December of 2005.

When she relayed the news to us that she wished to move on to a different employment situation which would be a better fit for her overall lifestyle goals, it was a poignant moment indeed, for everyone.

There are really too many memories to recount here.  When you operate a small company, and someone is as genuinely authentic and accessible as Lindsey, you have a chance to see into the incredibly happy, sad, and hilarious moments of someone’s work and personal life. The views she gifted us of that landscape over many years has undoubtedly enriched our lives.  We will always be grateful.

When she started with NIS, she had no children.  She now has six.

As you can imagine, working from home was in no way an easy task with young children around, but customers and interpreters were always gracious and accommodating.

We’re not sure how we are going to manage successfully without her.  She was, as we have joked for years, everyone’s favorite.

All this being said we will stay in touch and wish her the best on this new path.

 

ASL Rush by Jeremy Lee Stone


Jeremy Lee Stone says he is not sure what to call this genre. I would offer the word “Quantum” as a possible choice. It’s a discrete quantity of energy proportional in magnitude to the frequency of the radiation it represents.

We’re looking forward to more Quantum ASL Poetry.

Moving to Video


In light of the COVID-19 several customers are preparing to move their meetings and classes to video.  This is no problem!   If you are a customer who would like to consult with us about this, please reach out.   Likewise, if you are an interpreter who is uncertain about your equipment and video setup at home, and wish to talk with us about it, please email or text us.   We, like a lot of people, have years of experience in this realm and would be happy to help.

Keith Drown / #deafstory / –snippet–


Keith, while in school, was always good about following the rules.

Translation:

I do have fond memories from High School. (The residential school for the Deaf) We made our share of trouble any time those who were to be supervising us were out of the picture. We did a lot of things but getting to the swimming pool for a splash was always high on the agenda.

In the late night hours there was only one dorm supervisor to elude. We’d find an upper pool window, horizontally hinged and incompletely latched to send a kid through. They would then come around and open the main door for the rest of us. Of course we kept the lights off. It was a blast. When the coast was clear again we’d hightail it back to bed.

Nah, we never got caught.

Anyway, when school finished at 4:00 we would run over to P.E., do our thing, and then head to the dorms. We’d study and do our homework until round-about 10:00 or 10:30. Things would quiet down, we’d all be in bed, conspiring to watch for the supervisor, whose flashlight made him easy to track. (There were 2 floors and 4 rooms total, plus some rooms in another building). When the time was right, everyone was signaled, and we’d go wild.
