I am a Level 3 Lipspeaker with Level 2 British Sign Language (BSL). I provide communication support for the Deaf and hard of hearing community, who's preferred communication is lipreading with or without additional signs to support the meaning. I can work in all domains which include, Legal, Medical, Educational and Business.
I was a Police Officer for over 22 years, mainly as a Detective investigating serious and complex crime. I have a vast knowledge of the legal system. I have also worked for the Local Authority as a Housing Options Officer so have knowledge of Housing Law.
If you need communication support for any reason then please get in touch. I also can provide support with Access To Work and other benefits.
I have enhanced DBS clearance.
A complete delight to work with and a fabulous lipspeaker. Excellent skills along with a can-do attitude and goes above and beyond the role and job in hand to ensure each deaf person has access to the correct communication support. Kirsty is willing to travel to bookings and is also skilled in remote work such as Zoom/Teams. Kirsty has delivered training to her colleagues helping them to understand police jargon and is a regular contributor to professional discussion within the membership of the Association of Lipspeakers with Additional Sign. Honest. Trustworthy and able to work at senior levels.
Kirsty has proved herself to be a more than capable lipspeaker and has grown in confidence in the three years it's been my pleasure to work with her. She's equally comfortable partnering in a social situation, working alongside senior government officials in large meetings or facilitating in ministerial workshops. She has embraced flexible and virtual working practices and I know I can rely on her to be ready and primed when I need her.
