Marti Slaughter has been working in the field of post-secondary disability services for over 20 years. She started out her career as a sign-language interpreter concentrating services in a variety of colleges and universities including Duke University, North Carolina State University, Pellissippi State Community College, Argosy University, and the University of Georgia. She then moved on to the world of accessible text and print-related disabilities working for the inaugural form of the University System of Georgia's Board of Regent's Alternative Media Access Center (now the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation). Most recently, Marti has expanded her service skills to the broader disability population through caseload management services at the University of Iowa and now at Young Harris College. As the Director of Disability Services, she works to develop policy and services that remove all types of barriers to students with disabilities. She holds an Associate's degree and a Bachelor's degree in Sign Language Interpreting and a Master's of Social Work degree.
