MEET OUR TEAM

Janice B. Rimler

Janice B. Rimler

CEO/Founder

Established by Janice B. Rimler, a nationally certified sign language interpreter and nationally certified American Sign Language (ASL) instructor, All HANDS IN MOTION was a natural step into entrepreneurship after seventeen and a half years coordinating interpreters, creating workshops, curriculum, and mentoring at New York City College of Technology/City University of New York (CUNY). Her involvement in the New York City Deaf Community, since 1981 socially and professionally, includes Executive Board member of the New York Deaf Theatre, several Board positions in the local chapter of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (NYC METRO R.I.D.) including President; Board member of the New York City chapter of American Sign Language Teachers Association, and volunteering in other areas of the Community.

Although currently “retired” from teaching ASL, Janice taught for more than 23 years with New York Society for the Deaf; private clientele; and for CUNY. With her years of experience as an interpreter, coordinator, instructor, presenter at conferences locally, nationally, and internationally, and through the support of the Deaf Community and her colleagues and mentors, Janice saw All HANDS IN MOTION as a natural segue into consultancy and direct service provision.
