When Pamela Nygren, CSC, president and owner for ASL Interpreting Services was young she knew that she wanted to do more than just "go to work", she wanted to do something that made a difference.
To that end she
went to school to be an interpreter for the Deaf.She
worked hard and got fully certified.In 1986, she founded Dynamic Communications Inc. with the mission of providing companies with a connection to the Deaf world by offering training, awareness and assistance with specialized equipment.She
found many companies wanted to do business with the Deaf community, but just didn't know where to start.With the advent of the American's with Disabilities Act, doing business with the Deaf community became law and she
was there to help.In addition to her work with Dynamic Communications Inc, she continued to work as an interpreter and decided that there had to be a better "mouse trap" to provide the Deaf community with services without frustrating interpreters with outdated paging systems and manual record keeping.In 1995, Ms. Nygren started ASL interpreting Services (ASLIS) with two main ideas in mind:
To provide the Deaf consumer with the interpreter of their choice
AndTo provide superior customer serviceMs. Nygren
used all her
resources to develop a technologically advanced, well organized, and forward thinking referral service that cares about not only its interpreters but also the Deaf community it serves.
