My desire is to see all people feel connected and this dream has come true through Agape Interpreting Services.
DiAndria L. Zeigler is the CEO and Chief Marshall of AGAPE Interpreting Services, Inc. headquartered in St. Augustine, FL. She has an MBA in Business Administration, a Level 3 government clearance for interpreting needs, and currently maintains her membership affiliation with Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) and National Association of the Deaf (NAD).
DiAndria, a child/sibling of a Deaf adult (CODA/SODA) began her professional career in 2000 as a Contract Interpreter with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Interpreting Services. Upon realizing that she wanted to do more in the realm of accessible communication, she expanded beyond ASL into the world of Spoken Language Facilitation to help bridge the gap between communication breakdowns and accessible communication comprehension by placing quality professionals in positions of interpreting needs. This desire, which started as a fortuitous event, has now become a full language model for AGAPE Interpreting Services which facilitates 240 languages and dialects in the professional arena. This earned DiAndria the name “Chief Marshal” among her peers because she has proven capable to not only draw and work among people of many languages but understand various backgrounds and culture nuances which makes for a productive language team approach.
Her leadership of AGAPE Interpreting Services, Inc. spans from Kingsland, GA down the eastern coast and into the Altamonte Springs, FL areas. She has an extensive background in language consulting, training, and mentoring, and 20+ years’ experience in ASL Interpreting and Communication Facilitation with over 200 foreign languages and personnel.
DiAndria has been able to amass extensive partnerships with medical, governmental, religious, and educational agencies to enlarge her outreach in various communities on many different levels. When DiAndria is not hands on Interpreting or Directing, she spends most of her time with her husband Jermaine and their 2 beautiful daughters. The Zeigler’s volunteer at various locations including but not limited to the Jacksonville Zoo, Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind, and Community food banks. The Zeigler’s are faithful philanthropists who contribute to various local, national, and international charities.
