Stephanie Fox grew up in Woodlake, CA, and attended College of the Sequoias and California State University Northridge. Stephanie discovered Sign Language at COS and decided to become a Teacher of the Deaf because she saw a need for qualified teachers in the Central Valley. Her goal was to provide the best possible education to the Deaf. Stephanie went on to earn her B.A. degree in Deaf Studies from CSUN. While working towards that degree as a full-time student, Stephanie completed formal education through an Interpreter Training Program.
Two weeks after graduating from CSUN, Stephanie married her high school sweetheart, Robert. She returned to COS, this time as the college’s Lead Interpreter/Interpreter Coordinator. During this time, she was also given freelance interpreting opportunities and immediately fell in love with freelance work.
When the owner of the interpreting service retired, Stephanie accepted the opportunity to establish and grow the business. She founded Fox Interpreting Inc. in 1992, and it has been her passion ever since. When Anne Marks retired, owner of the interpreting service, she gave Stephanie her Rolodex, and Stephanie accepted the opportunity to establish and grow the business.
Stephanie continues to serve as an active board member. Thanks to Fox Interpreting Inc.’s wonderful team of interpreters and staff, she has recently been able to step back and enjoy spending more time with her children and grandchildren well as with Robert, the love of her life.
Stephanie’s faith has always been a very important part of her life. She believes that her success and Fox Interpreting Inc.’s success would not have been possible without God’s blessings and guidance, along with the support of her husband and family.
