Robin Trask, Interpreter, Cincinnati, Ohio
I can be contacted by email at, by phone at 513-919-9273 or by mail, 1048 Ironstone Dr., Cincinnati, Ohio 45240.
I began learning ASL when the church my family attended began offering ASL classes taught by an RID certified interpreter who had come to our church to begin a deaf ministry. Within weeks I was interpreting weekly announcements,scripture readings and the songs during worship services.I began taking formal ASL courses at the Cincinnati Bible College while still in high school. Upon graduation from HS I was hired to work at St.Rita School for the Deaf as a live-in dorm supervisor where I worked for 3 years. In 1978 I was accepted by Gallaudet University where I graduated in 1980 with an Associate of Arts degree in Interpreting.
In the Fall of 1979 I received my TC through the RID Potomac Chapter. Upon graduation I returned to Cincinnati and began a long and very diversified career interpreting as well as teaching Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced ASL at the College of Mt.St.Joseph here in Cincinnati for 17 yrs.
My interpreting experience includes but is not limited to medical, legal, educational, mental health, business, dramatic and tactile. I have worked with infants through seniors individually and in small groups as well as platform, including interpreting for two Presidents of the United States.

    I am an ASL interpreter, but i have spent the last 15 out of 30 years signing religiously. I have signed Pidgen for years as well as worked with CDIs. I graduated from Interpreter School in 1998. I have 30 years experience, but I am “brushing up” on ASL. I have done interpreting in many areas except legal. I did Oral Interpreting for two years. I have worked with children, teenagers, and adults who only signed “home signs”, but eventually progressed to English and on to ASL.
    I had certifications with RID years ago until I interpreted for church services and Sunday school. I have an Associates Degree in Applied Science in ASL, Associates in ASL, and a Certification College Diploma in Sign Language.
