Griseline Dionisio Jusino also known as Mrs. Grissy is an inspiring, heart-full individual who has dedicated her life to learning about the Deaf community. Her inspiration came about when her first born daughter was diagnosed with hearing loss at the age of two, 30 years ago. Ever since then she dedicated herself to learn all she could about the Deaf community just so that she can learn about the world that her daughter would once become a part of. Her eagerness to ensure that the communication between her daughter and her grew and this served as a motivation for her to become an interpreter and a teacher. In turn, she obtained a Deaf Studies degree and a Masters in Education as well as becoming a Certified ASL/Spanish Interpreter. She has over 17 years experience and has provided services within various fields (educational: New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE), VESID-ACCES-VR, medical and mental health).
