While most sign language interpreters devote their time to helping others with educational pursuits, Barbie Parker has chosen a different path.
She combined her career with her passion for music and started doing sign language interpretations for rock concerts. This free-spirited woman translates lyrics as well as the music itself to her customers.
"Music is such a large part of who I am," she says. "I want to be able to open up that experience." Barbie Parker mouths words, air guitars and drums. For a music enthusiast and a sign linguist, I cannot think of a more fitting career choice and wholeheartedly congratulate this woman for her ability to integrate what she does into what she loves.
