Vicky Pannell (Nee Nunn) qualified as a sign language interpreter in 2009. She has experience interpreting in a variety of different domains such as office, medical, theatre, and education amongst others.

However, Vicky has always had a passion for community and medical interpreting.
Vicky has a particular interest in the dynamic between interpreters and Deaf professionals – particularly when working with the same person for a long time and discusses this working relationship in her webinar: 'Interpreting on the ward'. Vicky looks at working with Deaf professionals in a medical setting and the particular challenges this raises, and also discusses interpreting for Deaf patients in hospital.
