Juniper Sussman
Short Biography

Juniper Sussman, CSC, has been interpreting at Gallaudet University since 1980, joining the full time staff in 1994. During that time she has developed specializations in interpreting with children, mental health, education, and ASL to English production.  She has actively dedicated herself to mentorship, believing it to be the key to professional development for both new and seasoned interpreters. In addition to her work as an interpreter and a mentor, Juniper presents workshops on topics such as message analysis, mentorship, ethics, ASL to English interpreting, cultural mediation, professional communication, diplomacy, social justice, and cultural competency. For almost ten of her 30 plus years on campus, Juniper served as the Interpreter Coordinator at the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center. It was at the Clerc Center where Juniper created the Emerging Signers Program, for new students who are not fluent in ASL. Juniper has a particular love for teaching interpreting which she has had the privilege to do as an adjunct professor at Phoenix College and Gallaudet University, the latter being, where she earned her Associates of Arts in Interpreting degree in 1982.
