Hello! My name is Kimmi and I enjoy studying and teaching language. I love to study and languages is my topic of choice. You can always find me with a book in hand or my nose to my phone reading the latest linguistic news out there. I am fluent in English and American Sign Language. I am a CODA [child of a Deaf adult], so I grew up using ASL in my day to day conversations. While languages can be challenging, I think that exercising your mind is one of the best ways to better yourself and the world around you. The better you learn to communicate, the more people you can meet. Language enriches our lives in many ways and branching out our social circles is just one gift that language gives us.

I really enjoy Kimmi's classes! I work as a British Sign Language Interpreter and I wanted to learn ASL as I often meet deaf people who have not learnt British Sign Language yet know ASL. Kimmi has been able to easily adapt to me and is able to match my needs. I love her flow and style! She has lessons planned and provides knowledge of the structure/ grammar of ASL, which helps me to grasp the language more easily. I can't wait to continue my ASL journey with her! Highly recommend!

Kimmi did an amazing job explaining elements of the linguistics of ASL to my Introduction to Linguistics class. None of us wanted the lesson to end! Highly recommended!
