Dr. Lisalee D. Egbert – As a 3rd generation Deaf person, I am blessed to have a huge loving Deaf and hearing family. I obtained her Ph.D. from Texas Woman’s University with a tri-discipline on Reading/Literacy, Bilingual Education and Deaf Culture. My Ph.D. is one of 6 degrees – I am addicted to learning. Currently, I am professor at California State University, Sacramento and an adjunct instructor at Sierra College where I teach in the Deaf Studies Departments. I am honored to sit on the ASDC (American Society for Deaf Children) and Cal Ed (California Educators of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing) boards. I enjoy being an advocate for Deaf child’s education and research specialist for N.A.D.I.N.E (Nation Advocates for Deafness to Inform, Network, and Enrich) and I am the current president Capital Regional CSUN/NCOD alumni chapter in the Northern California. I adore my husband Stephen, who is also Deaf, and our 3 amazing boys.
