Paul Tracy

Co-Founder, CI/CT

Along with my younger brother, I was born and raised here in the Bay state to a hearing mother and a DeafBlind father. I started in the construction industry but soon found myself following in my mother’s footsteps, becoming an interpreter. Since the 1990s, I have worked throughout Massachusetts and surrounding states in post-secondary, corporate, VRS, medical, mental health, and conference settings. Prior to co-founding Partners Interpreting PI, I was a staff interpreter at Northeastern University. I also am the dad to two wonderful kids. Some of my favorite pastimes include home improvement projects, friends, music, food and playing sports.

Jenn Maloney

Co-Founder, CI/CT, NIC

A New Jersey native, I spent my first four years living on the New Jersey School for the Deaf campus before I moved to Pennsylvania with my Deaf father John, DeafBlind mother Winnie, and hearing sister Jessica. I landed in Rhode Island via the interpreter training program at Northeastern University in Boston. I became nationally certified, and have worked in various settings including conferences, post-secondary, DeafBlind, video relay, and community. In addition to co-founding Partners Interpreting, I serve as the Director of Interpreting! When not working, I enjoy time with my children and my dog Tyra, especially at the beach.

Tonya DePalma she/her/hers

Director of Client Experience

I first came to Partners Interpreting in 2013 after working in in education, customer service, and corporate training. I love my job; but more importantly, the people I work with — we are like family. I live in Mansfield, Massachusetts with my husband Brian and our two children, who are named after Yankee players (yes, it’s true… we are Yankee fans in Boston!). I enjoy the beach, trying new restaurants, watching sports, listening to live music, reading, and organizing, especially for party planning. My life goal is to someday live near the beach in the south where I am surrounded by family and friends while hosting parties with live music and televised sports playing on my palm tree-covered lanai.

Courtney Marsocci

Business Development Specialist

I grew up in a small town in Rhode Island with my family. During my sophomore year at La Salle Academy in Providence, I was introduced to the Deaf community through a close family friend. I began learning ASL and started at Partners Interpreting in 2018. What started as an internship turned into a scheduler job, followed by my current role. Outside of work and sign language classes, I spend my time with my pets, watering my small jungle, reading true crime books, and watching sunsets at the beach with friends.

Faith Christensen

Payroll Administrator, FPC

Born and raised in Iowa, I greatly enjoy traveling and have visited 31 states so far. I love meeting new people, hearing new accents, and trying new food. My three children are grown, giving me more time to hike with my rescue dog, read all the books I can, fail at keeping my house plants alive, and enjoy all things chocolate. Prior to coming to Partners Interpreting in 2021, I worked at a credit union and traveled the country training clients and installing payroll systems, along with a fun mix of HR, accounting, management, and processing payrolls. My experience with the deaf community before Partners was limited but I have been warmly welcomed. I appreciate getting to work with this wonderful team every day!

Katie "KW" Winters she/her/hers

Human Resource Specialist

I was born and raised in Massachusetts, where I obtained degrees in interpreting from Northern Essex Community College and University of New Hampshire-Manchester, yet I never felt like working as an interpreter was the right fit for me. I spent 11 years living in Austin, Texas, where I hit my stride as an interpreter coordinator and eventually the office manager at a busy interpreting agency. I went on to become a program specialist for the Board for Evaluation of Interpreters (BEI). My roots called me back to Massachusetts in 2021, but Austin will always hold a special place in my heart. I am a Bruins fan, hairless cat enthusiast, nature lover/glamping queen, and I enjoy traveling whenever I get the chance.

After being a stay-at-home mom for many years, I began captioning for Deaf and hard of hearing students within Georgia’s largest University system. This grew to Coordinating services at the University and training and mentoring new Captioners. I started in July 2021 as a Coordinator for Partners Interpreting. I have lived in Atlanta Georgia for almost 30 years, so I will call Atlanta my home. I have family all over the United States and in Toronto, Canada. I have a daughter attending Louisiana State University (Go Tigers!), a son who is a senior in high school, and a 12-year-old Yorkie. I love to travel, scuba dive, watch hockey, spend time with friends, and try to spend as much time at the beach as I can!

Brenna Rainey she/her/hers

Client Service Coordinator

Born and raised on the Jersey Shore, I grew up with a fascination with sign language and started teaching myself through books and videos in high school. I began my complicated college career in upstate New York in an interpreting program then transferred to Gallaudet University. I graduated in 2021 with a bachelor’s degree in Deaf studies after having studied for two years virtually during the pandemic. In attendance at my college graduation were my mother, boyfriend, and dog; I never thought my dog would be present at my college graduation. I worked as an ASL substitute teacher at the local public high school before beginning my career with Partners Interpreting in December 2021. Outside of work, I enjoy attending dance classes, spending time with my friends, listening to music and true crime podcasts, and binge-watching the latest true crime shows.
