Amber Burley, an Assistant Professor at the University of Cincinnati, has an extensive background working with the Deaf community. Starting from eighth grade, Burley always knew she wanted to work with the Deaf community. "I remember being in the car with my mom, and I told her out of the blue that I wanted to work with Deaf people. Somehow I always knew that is what I wanted to do."
Burley has built her career around Deaf communities by working as a sign language interpreter in K-12 education, for local non-profit organizations like the Hearing Speech and Deaf Center of Greater Cincinnati, area hospitals like Children’s and UC Health, for Talbert House, and Social Security Administration.
