About Us...

An organization that takes great pride in the valuable work it does to promote
accessibility and bridging the communication barriers between the deaf and hearing communities.
Donna FernandezOur success is due largely in part to the fact that Executive Director and Owner, Donna R. Fernandez, is a CODA (child of deaf adults) herself, hence the name for the company, CODA Link, Inc. Growing up as a CODA and with sign language being her first language, Donna was relied upon to interpret for her family as a young child (prior to the Americans with Disability Act), thereby establishing a keen understanding, greater knowledge and innate aptitude of the skills required to expressively and receptively facilitate the many idiosyncrasies and nuances in various forms across the continuum of signed communication. With over 25 years of experience in the field of interpreting and well versed in a variety of settings, she holds and maintains national certification (Certificate of Interpreting and Certificate of Transliterating (CI/CT)) from Registry Interpreters for the Deaf (RID). Donna has first hand understanding of the communication barriers that challenge this community. She brings extensive background knowledge and expertise to the field of interpreting. Her involvement and dedication to the community is much more than a business — it a heartfelt passion and love for the people she holds most dear. Our interpreters share in her vision and as a company, have the strong social responsibility and commitment to ensure professional services are provided.
For more than 12 years, CODA Link, Inc. has provided efficient solutions to South Florida's deaf and hard-of-hearing community. CODA Link, Inc.'s primary focus is to promote integration and accessibility by providing professional and reliable interpreters who are specialized in American Sign Language and deaf culture. CODA Link, Inc. was established to alleviate the frustrations felt by the deaf of not being able to communicate with the hearing world and to bridge the gap between the deaf and the hearing communities. Our experience and understanding of unique individual needs allow us to customize our services to allow the consumer/clients to become equal participants in the communication process. CODA Link, Inc. believes in the power of an integrated society, where all its parts are equally valued and given the opportunity to achieve individual as well as collective goals.
