Meet the Founders:

Dorri Holzheimer is an alumna of Montana School for the Deaf and the Blind and Great Falls High School. She is a Deaf mentor, a true Montanan, and a wonderful mom. Her endurance, level head, and hard work ethic keeps the camp crew on track. Her parenting skills make sure campers and staff are safe and well cared for. Her Deaf mentor skills add important evaluation perspectives on the language acquisition of the Deaf campers. Dorri provides essential organizational skills and balance to the camp leadership team.

Hollis and Amanda Fudge: Hollis, Deaf, graduated from Montana State University with a degree in cell biology and neuroscience. He is currently employed as an IT in Great Falls, MT. Amanda, hearing, is a hard-working mama. Together they have five kids, both deaf and hearing. Hollis and Amanda understand the immediate need for the ASL community to come together and share their knowledge and strengths with each other and with the next generation. Out of love for their kids and their community in Montana, they founded Conservatory ASL Northwest in February of 2019.  They co-founded (with Stacy Lawrence) ASL CAN Film Camp in 2019.

Stacy Lawrence holds a Masters in Career and Human Resource Development from the Rochester Institute of Technology. With a wonderful team, Stacy hosted the 2009 & 2011 Deaf Rochester Film Festivals. Stacy founded and directed Deaf Film Camp for several summers at Camp Mark Seven in New York. Music videos in ASL that Stacy had so much fun producing with incredible children include: “HAPPY” by Pharrell Williams (New York), “HOME” by Phillip Phillips (New York), “BRAVE” by Sara Bareilles (California), “I BELIEVE” by Yolanda Adams (ENGLAND), and “THE MIDDLE” by Jimmy Eat World (New York). She has twice hosted the Deaf Lens Filmmaking workshop at Writers & Books, and she is currently producing & directing a United Nations Film Project. 

Stacy is the inspirational genius of ASL CAN Film Camp. She is a master weaver. Her chosen medium? The skills and personalities of the teaching team. With them she creates an amazing tapestry of education, inclusion, and inspiration. Truly a work of art!
