Dawn Duran is a RID NIC Advanced, SC:L and Utah State Professionally Certified Interpreter. She hails from Ga, but came to Utah and earned her B.S. in Human Development focusing on Language Development from Brigham Young University. There she met Deaf friends and found out that if you are the only hearing person in a group of friends, you better learn to interpret! She has been interpreting since Jan. 1990 and in those 26+ years has interpreted in almost every setting she can think of but specializes in interpreting for legal situations as well as for victims or abuse. She currently works full-time as the Vice President of Marketing & Relationships for ASL Communications, and absolutely loves it! She is also a member of the RID Professional Development Committee (PDC).
