2019 Board of Directors

Nicole Morgan


Nicole Morgan graduated from Gallaudet University in May 2018, with a Master of Arts in ASL Linguistics. Her desire is to merge her expertise in linguistics with what she knows (and continues to learn) about the field of interpreting to foster better relationships between the Deaf and Interpreting communities. 

As treasurer for the 2019-20 Board of PCRID, her goals are to be a good steward over its finances, and to create initiatives that increase PCRID’s mission to be a part of changing and diversifying the face of the Interpreting community by further expanding its outreach with and between the Deaf and Interpreting organizations whom share our region.

Keisha Osborne


Keisha is a nationally certified freelance interpreter in the DMV but very much a Kentucky girl at heart.  She received her Bachelors of Science in ASL-English interpreting from Eastern Kentucky University in 2012. Keisha also graduated from Gallaudet University with a Master of Arts in Interpretation and a Master of Arts in Linguistics. She is currently pursuing a PhD in the Linguistics Department at Gallaudet University.

Paris McTizic


As a proud Afro-Latino, Paris’ roots stem from the vibrant and sunny South Florida. In 2015, he sought to further his education and dive deeper into one of the nation’s largest Deaf communities right here in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. While studying to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Interpretation from Gallaudet University (2017), he has been involved in several Deaf and interpreting organizations as well as serving on the Board of Directors for the National Alliance of Black Interpreters, D.C. chapter.

Samantha Schein

Professional Development

A native Pennsylvanian, Samantha has lived in the DC area for the past ten years. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from The Pennsylvania State University, and Master of Arts in Interpreting from Gallaudet University. She has been working full time in the interpreting community since 2014. In her free time, she enjoys training for outdoor obstacle races, crossword puzzles, and following Philadelphia sports teams.


Antonio Burkett


Antonio lives in the DC metro area by way of Pine Bluff, Arkansas.  He worked for the Federal government for almost 13 years before resigning in February 2019.  He is currently a freelance/VRS interpreter and the Social Media Manager for NAOBI DC.

Jesse Candelaria

Community Relations

Jesse graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Deaf Studies from the University of Arizona in 2004. He graduated from Gallaudet University with a Master of Arts in Interpretation in 2016. He predominantly works in medical, government and post secondary. Jesse currently interprets in the DC Metro area.
