My name is Jessica Maryan, I was born profoundly deaf in the late 70s. I was not diagnosed with profound deafness until at the age of 3. I found sign language later in life when I went to university in Lancashire. It was there I gained a unique insight into the deaf world. I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Business Management.
Having both witnessed and experienced discrimination first hand, I was, and still am, passionate about creating solutions to lessen the gap of inequality for deaf people and enabling them to find their voice; after all, isn’t that what we all want in life, to be heard and validated. Upon working in the Deaf community, I became a qualified advocate specialising in vulnerable adults and Care Act.
I set up Meadow Interpreting to reduce the gap between deaf and hearing people so that they can become independent, using communication professionals in their everyday lives, through employment, training, and social events so they can have the same, equal access to information as their hearing peers.
I have extensive experience in this field, having been involved in the Deaf community for more than 20 years and working in the interpreting industry for over 10 years, additionally, I know most of interpreters around the UK. Therefore, I can meet the individual needs of deaf people.
I am fluent in British Sign Language and recently obtained the Level 6 qualification. This is the equivalent of a degree. I have also competed part 1 of the Sign Language Interpreter qualification and I am currently a trainee BSL/Intralingual Sign Language Interpreter. I am in the process of completing part 2 of the interpreting qualification to enable me to become a qualified Sign Language Interpreter. I have achieved the equivalent of 3 degrees so far.
Jessica is also a qualified advocate specialising in Vulnerable Adults and Care Act. If you require freelance advocacy services, please contact us.
