The Virginia Department for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (VDDHH) is pleased to welcome Karen Brimm to the team as community services manager!

Karen Brimm, M.A., RID Ed:K-12, earned associates degrees in ASL-Deaf Studies and ASL-English Interpretation from J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, where she is now an adjunct instructor. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in Interpreter Training from Troy University, and was a member of the inaugural cohort earning a Master of Interpreting Studies and Communication Equity from St. Catherine University.

Her professional experience includes interpreting and as a support service provider (SSP), office management, and teaching. She serves on boards for the Virginia Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (VRID) and the Virginia Association of the Deafblind and is a long-time special events volunteer for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Richmond.

Recently, Karen became a mentor through the Virginia Department of Education’s Educational Interpreter Grant. Along with administering the VADB Facebook page, Karen also curates her “Gish Girl” page where she collects information on interpreting, ASL, education, and encourages the thirst for knowledge. In her spare time, she attempts to finish existing quilting projects before starting new ones.
