Christina Hammrich

Christina became interested in American Sign Language at a young age when her father would take her sailing to Martha’s Vineyard, a Deaf utopia off the coast of Massachusetts which was instrumental in the development of American Sign Language (https://www.verywellhealth.com/deaf-history-marthas-vineyard-1046546).  In 5th grade her mom gave her a sign language dictionary that she used to teach herself ASL.  She attended Penn State University (where she roomed with Ilene Breneman, her best friend since 6th grade and later her matron of honor and now HIS Sign HR Manager), receiving a BS in Marketing.  It was at State College where she took her first sign language class which began a lifetime passion turned profession. 

Upon graduation and after meeting Brian (husband and now CEO of HIS Sign), she continued taking sign language and interpreting classes. In June of 2010, after 20 years of freelancing, Christina and Brian started HIS Sign, a sign language interpreting agency based in Northern Virginia.  While Brian ran the office, Christina was out in the field providing interpreting services, building HIS Sign’s customer base and growing the interpreter pool.If Christina is not working, she most definitely is not at home. She has successfully been able to pair her love of interpreting with her love for traveling, interpreting in such places as Canada, the Caribbean, China and Iceland. Her other passions include eating at fine dining establishments, SCUBA diving and catching Broadway shows in New York City with her daughter or at the Hippodrome in Baltimore with her daughter-in-law. And her #1 favorite pastime is spending time with her granddaughter, Kate!
