About the Founder: Carla Baker
Founder of Stellar Communication:
As a young child I lost my hearing gradually from age one Profound in my left ear to losing my right ear by the age ten. I officially transferred to an Hi Deaf Program and started learning Sign Language at the age of 11.
As a college student I choose to attend Gallaudet University the only Deaf University in the World and the world opened up to me in a way I could understand forever. I then went on to UNM studying Psychology and Evolutionary Anthropology with Interpreters and Captioning Services I was able achieve my dreams.
In 2013 I started working with a number of different ASL Interpreting Agencies and Captioning Agencies. I continued until 2018 when I started Stellar Communication.
After opening Stellar I then found CymaSpace a Deaf lead Art and Technology Organization. There I helped build the Access Program for Arts and Cultural Organization within CymaSpace. I continue to run the Access program in partnership with CymaSpace and Stellar to this day.
Today with well over 50,000 plus hours of Interpreting/Captioning coordinating experience as an Administrator I am proud of my work and serve as a professional Coordinator for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Access Services.
I love to talk with clients! I love to connect with them in their own pursuit to creating access while reaching out to the professionals in each individual spectrum from ASL- ENGLISH & ENGLISH-ASL Interpreting, DeafBlind ProTactile PTASL Interpreting, Deaf Interpreting, CART Captioning and TypeWell transcription and passing what I learn along to create STELLAR outcomes for everyone!
Over the years added with COVID-19 Safety requirements I’ve studied and have gained talents in Remote Services. I also manage Streaming and Auto-Captioning as requested.
As I continue to grow I am taking ongoing courses! Ill be posting certificates and other accomplishments here!
