Dallas, TX–June 1, 2021—AvodahMed hires Jennifer Storey as Sign Language Program Lead.
Jennifer Storey comes to AvodahMed with extensive experience interacting with the Deaf Community. She is bilingual in ASL and English and is skilled in the fields of education and research. Storey, who has been profoundly deaf since the age of 18 months, knows firsthand the significant communication barriers that deaf and hard-of-hearing people can encounter, especially when seeking medical assistance. Her desire for all to have access to quality and compassionate healthcare makes Storey a natural fit for her role with AvodahMed.
Before joining AvodahMed, Storey worked as a Deaf educator and ASL instructor, and also currently serves as a consultant for Fuller Theological Seminary and Biblica, developing an online Bible translation training course for Deaf translators. Her recent work is an asset as she guides AvodahMed in its development of an American Sign Language (ASL) medical database to enable healthcare providers to communicate directly with ASL users.
After understanding our use of Artificial Intelligence for ASL recognition technology, Storey commented, “Consider me a converted skeptic. When I was introduced to AvodahMed and the technology, my first reaction was ‘No way is this possible!’ But now that I have seen firsthand what AvodahMed is developing, its capabilities and impact, I am amazed at the cutting-edge technology. It will truly be awesome and life-changing.”
Storey holds a BA in English Literature from Willamette University and MA in Deaf Education from Columbia University Teachers College. She is married to her high school sweetheart and they have four children.
