Louisiana native Scott Huffman has been working as a Sign Language Interpreter since 2011. Although he works as a Sign Language Interpreter, his passion rests with Deaf men and women in the carceral system. His passion for Deaf/Deaf-Blind/Hard of Hearing (DDBHH) prisoners is what sparked him to get involved in the interpreting profession.
Mr. Huffman is currently working on a Bachelor of Science in ASL-to-English Interpreting.
From 2014-2017, Scott served on the board of the Capitol Area Reentry Coalition (CAPARC) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he has been influential in bringing awareness to CAPARC and the Louisiana Department of Corrections about the need for immediate access and equality for DDBHH incarcerated persons. In 2015, he began serving on the board of Helping Educate to Advance the Rights of the Deaf (HEARD) to support their efforts in ensuring equal rights and accessibility to all DDBHH prisoners & returned citizens. In 2016, Scott began serving his state interpreting community by acting as Vice President to Louisiana Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (LRID).
In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and four kids. When he’s not with his family he enjoys hunting and attending workshops/conferences related to the profession of sign language interpreter, as well as, being an avid Deaf Access to Justice Activist.
