[Background image description – a bright, sunny day and a background of a mill with a bridge leading towards the wheel from the left to middle of the screen, windows with black shutters can be seen on the right (one fully visible and others on a wall that is barely visible). Bright green bushes with several smaller bushes are lined up alongside the bridge on left with some grassy hill sloping downwards to a pond with water fountain on far left. The Mill is built on a base of stones and walls are bricks. There is a white female signer with blonde hair pulled back in a bun, wearing a short sleeved plue polo shirt with white DAS logo embroidered on the left side. She is smiling throughout the video.]
HI! My name is Jill Owens, Director of Consumer Relations and Quality Assurance. It is an ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL day today! Spring is REALLY here… Oh, that means Summer is right around the corner. Oy! The sweltering heat is coming soon and for those of you who love it - you all are in for luck! It’s nearly the season of getting in the water, splish splashing in the water while basking in the sun absorbing the Vitamin D. That’s what I’m doing right now!! Breathing in and enjoying the Spring weather we’re having today. In the Spring, all plants and flowers blooming signifies growth. DAS is experiencing Spring-like growth as well and we wanted to share with you, new staff members! We brought on new members onto our Coordination and Interpreting Teams. We wanted you to have the opportunity to meet them in a similar fashion as our Staff Introductions last Fall. The new members filmed an introduction of themselves for you. I now present you the new Staff Interpreters…
