Anjelica Thompson

Interpreter Coordinator

Anjelica (she/her) has been working as an ASL interpreter since 2011. She holds her National Interpreter Certification and loves working with the Deaf community. She is an avid list maker who is passionate about organization, communication, and inclusion. She loves animals, arts and crafts, rainy days, and bullet journaling. Driving around with the windows down listening to her favorite music is one of her favorite ways to destress. When she isn’t interpreting or organizing, you can find her snuggled up with her two cats Josie and Lani watching her favorite movies.
