Texas’ Premier Language Interpreting Company


Nightingale has been dedicated to serving the deaf, hard of hearing and blind since the Chung family established it in 1987. Seeing a segment of society that was clearly underserved, the Chungs set out to improve conditions for the deaf, hard of hearing and blind community in the Houston area.

Kerry Lacsamana, Nightingale’s current owner, has carried on this proactive community service approach and combined it with an uncompromising commitment to quality and service.

Why Certified Interpreters?

  • Certified interpreters are professionals who have proven skills and bona fide qualifications.
  • Certified interpreters are bound by strict Standards of Ethical Behavior which include three main concepts: Confidentiality, Impartiality and Integrity.
  • Members of the deaf community prefer a “live” interpreter and this is the most convenient, reliable, and accurate means of exchanging information with the deaf and hard of hearing .
  • Using impersonal remote service companies does not guarantee you effective, competent, certified interpreting.
