Gina brings a wealth of perspectives on the field, not only as an interpreter, but also as a business owner and a consumer. She has also served on other boards, including the International Alumnae of Delta Epsilon Sorority and was an OGG delegate at the 2016 NAD conference. Currently, she is also president of the Eastern Deaf Women's Bowling Association! This track record of organizational leadership experience will certainly make her an asset to PCRID.
Director of Communication (Vacant Position)
Traci Ison began working in the DC area in 2010, and finally settled in Maryland from the Northern Kentucky/ Cincinnati area in 2014. Her insight from having lived and worked in various Deaf communities around the country, is a real asset to the board.
Traci's goal for her PCRID term is to create positive change in the local Deaf, Interpreting, and Stakeholder communities through fostering meaningful collaboration. She served as the Communication Director in 2016, and was nominated and elected as Community Relations Director in 2017, which is a truly fitting position given her desire to make an impact with community collaboration.
