About Dr. Egbert

Throughout Dr. Egbert's professional and personal experiences, she has gleaned a broad understanding of the challenges faced by students, teachers and parents in the educational process of children and young people who are Deaf/ Hard of Hearing and multicultural. As a mother she has faced the challenges of raising a child with special needs and maneuvering the IEP process. It is through her experiences that she is able to bring a unique perspective to the field of education and create a bridge between the personal experiences of people with whom she has worked and the knowledge she has gained throughout her academic career.

I have worked with Dr. Egbert on numerous successful Deaf Community events. We have collaborated together to donated funds to Deaf/KODA/ASL Camps so that our children can fully enjoy, access and play with peers. She has helped me raise awareness through laughter and storytelling in order to reach, teach, and entertain hundreds of people. Working with Dr. Egbert has been CHAMP!

Dr. Egbert's enthusiasm, passion, creativity, and wealth of practical knowledge make her a solid choice for your next Deaf Education, Deaf Studies, or Interpreter Training event. Whenever I'm at a conference and see her on the schedule -- that's the workshop I make sure to attend.  What can I say? I like to be entertained and educated at the same time.
