Hello PARID District 6 members!  My name is Tess Fosse and as of August 1, 2015, I am your new District 6 Representative.  Here is a little about my background.  I am a graduate of Bloomsburg University (BS).  In 2007, I began my career in Northern Virginia working as a staff interpreter in a post-secondary setting.  I moved back to PA in 2008 and began working as a staff interpreter at Bloomsburg University.  I also interpret in a variety of freelance settings.  I was the PARID newsletter editor from 2010-2011.  I enjoy serving both the field of interpreting and the Deaf community in a variety of volunteer efforts.  My current interests involve mentoring and pursuing my Master’s in Organizational Leadership.  I hope to bring those skills to the PARID Board and to better serve the members in our area.  Please contact me with any questions, concerns, or recommendations at
