I do what I love and I love what I do!
Hello! My name is Lydia Callis. I am a professional American Sign Language interpreter, community educator, and advocate for equal access. Through LC Interpreting Services, I provide quality ASL Interpretation, interpreter mentoring, and one-on-one ASL training.
I am motivated by connecting people, preserving Deaf culture and empowering individuals to pursue their dreams without limitation I work to raise awareness regarding Deaf social issues, and actively advocate for public policy reform.
I gained media exposure during hurricane Sandy for my ASL interpretations of Mayor Bloomberg and other NYC officials. It was an honor to assist the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community during the storm, and I am humbled that my interpretation style (see some examples on my You Tube channel) has opened the door for a timely cultural dialogue regarding Deafness in America.
I am so grateful to have an opportunity to contribute toward bringing Deaf culture and language into the public spotlight. If you would like to know more about the services that I offer, please follow the links below.
