Kimberly Shea, Chair-Elect (2022-2023)
Kimberly is a founding member of the Global Alliance. She made that commitment because she believes that captioners have needed an organization of their own for a very long time, one that represents them separate and apart from other industries. She believes that consumer representation in the organization is vital because it provides a space for those who use captions to have a voice regarding their accommodations. It also creates a united front when it comes to showing the public not only how captions are provided and the importance of quality but also the value of the service and the difference it makes in people’s lives every day. Kimberly's passion and advocacy for her profession and for the communities we serve is not mutually exclusive. She believes that we still have much to do regarding awareness and education, and is excited to do that alongside those she serves.
