Kristy Buffington Twin Falls
I am currently grateful to be working as the Post-Secondary Transition Coordinator at the Idaho Educational Services for the Deaf and the Blind. I began interpreting following graduation from Western Oregon University in 1999. Since then, I have worked as an educational interpreter, in both K-12 and postsecondary environments, a freelance interpreter, and most recently, a VRS and medical VRI interpreter. I also enjoy performing arts and theatrical interpreting. I previously served on the board as the Professional Development chair, and look forward to serving as president for the next two years.
In addition to interpreting, I have a Master’s degree in anthropology and teach as an adjunct cultural anthropology instructor for both the College of Southern Idaho and Idaho State University. I also enjoy spending time with my family, doing stained glass mosaic work, reading, and the outdoors.
