My name is Pamela Nygren Wellumson. Ever since I was 12 years old I wanted to be an interpreter for the Deaf. In 1981, my dreams became true and I began freelance interpreting upon certification. In 1995, I founded ASL Interpreting Services because I knew I could supply superior client service for three distinct groups of people.

From Our Website

On-site ASL Interpreters (PPE trained) available locally in Minnesota when safe! Online ASL Interpreters (VRI) available WORLDWIDE on demand! We can help you identify which option to choose and match you with the best interpreter for each unique situation. We have Deaf heart. We invest in the community by donating to many local Deaf organizations. Our Deaf Advisory Board (DAB) proactively guides our business to stay in touch with Deaf values. One area that ASLIS has particularly exceeded in has been the ability to get an interpreter quickly for appointments where we do not have a lot of notice.


Improve communication access across Greater Minnesota! Interpreters are paired with an experienced mentor to focus on increasing the interpreters' confidence and skills when accepting a wide variety of community assignments. Interpreters will be provided with opportunities to meet with their mentor to exercise a variety of interpreting skills through virtual mentoring sessions. This program is key to increasing interpreters' confidence and skills in freelance settings. ASLIS is seeking mentors who are highly qualified and have a background in working with interpreters to develop their skills and confidence to increase the number of qualified interpreters in Greater Minnesota.
