Bio: 
Sarah Wheeler has experienced the dangers of a sandstorm in Kuwait, a California earthquake, and skydiving from an airplane, and she never would have imagined that those adrenaline rushes would match what she feels daily when she goes to work as an interpreter. As a child of Deaf parents, she was assimilated to Deaf culture early on. But she continues to be humbled by how much there is to learn about American Sign Language, Deaf culture, and the interpreting process. She is a nationally certified interpreter with a license to interpret in North Carolina.
