Founder / Jennifer Clifford

Jennifer Clifford is the Founder and CEO of Interpret San Diego. Jennifer is an interpreter, certified Level IV (Advanced) by the National Association of the Deaf (NAD) as recognized by the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID). She has over 20 years of experience transliterating classroom lectures, conferences, training, special events, and professional appointments and interpreting the client responses from ASL to English in one-on-one, classroom, and big venue environments. Jennifer has had the privilege to interpret for President George W. Bush; Alan Krueger, Chief Economic Advisor to President Barack Obama; Admiral Thad Allen, USCG (Ret.); and San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders.

Jennifer’s success would have not been possible had it not been six and a half years spent as a student, an intern, and employee working as the Department Administrator and Sign Language Interpreter for the Department of ASL and Deaf Studies at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC, from August 1998 – December 2004.
