Carol Davis was born and raised in Satsuma, Alabama, spending the last 42 years living along the Gulf Coast from Baton Rouge to Port St. Joe in the Florida Panhandle. She attended Gulf Coast State College and Ashford University, majoring in Business Administration. It was in Panama City, Florida where she first encountered the world of ASL and the Deaf Community. After taking a simple six-week class, she had found her calling. Since 1985, she has been a church, educational (pre-K through post-secondary), staff, community interpreter. Her greatest honor was interpreting fro the former President Bill Clinton on the campaign trail. She has also been an ASL instructor, case manager for the deaf and hard of hearing, interpreter coordinator, and program coordinator for a center for independent living. Most recently Ms Davis has returned home to Mobile County to work at AIDB (Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind). In her free time, she is an active member for the Krewe of St. Andrews (KOSA) and also runs a business from home, Coastal Crafts by Carol, where she is still working with her hands to create seasonal and holiday wreaths and other home decor items.
Shanna Trim was born and raised in Mobile County. She first began learning to sign in 6th grade and credits her (still to this day) best friend Ryan with leading her down this path. After resisting the calling to interpret for quite a while (by way of following her husband around in the military for 12 years to several states and a couple of countries) Shanna came full circle and decided to pay attention to the voice in the back of her head and become an interpreter. After graduating from Troy University and working in several community and educational settings, she landed in her current role as a staff interpreter for AIDB Mobile Regional Center. Shanna views interpreting not as a job, but a calling.
Shanna resides across the bay from Mobile in beautiful Daphne, Alabama with her husband of 22 years, Mikhail, her college-aged son, Seamus, and her three cats. When she's not zooming all over Mobile to appointments that she can't talk about, Shanna enjoys all things Disney, along iwht knitting, sewing, crafting, baking, and especially reading. She can be reached at email@example.com .
