VIDEO: Culturally Deaf winemaker makes big impact in first job

"I wanted to be responsible for myself," - Teisha Sauve

Teisha Sauve is a local young woman with a passion for wine. She is a motivated youth, excited about securing her first job in the community. She also happens to be Culturally Deaf. With the help of the Sault Community Career Centre and the Canadian Hearing Society, Teisha was able to connect with Stonehouse Wines, a downtown business that jumped at the opportunity to work with her.

The owner and staff of Stonehouse Wines are enthusiastically learning American Sign Language, so they can better accommodate and communicate with Teisha. Teisha and Stonehouse have created an inspiring working relationship, where they are learning and growing together.
