About Rise

Our Story

RISE Interpreting is a family-owned small business based in Riverside, CA. RISE launched in the summer of 2007 by the brother and sister team of Phil Carmona and Adonis Parker. Growing up with a Deaf cousin, Phil and Adonis had a natural interest in signing. In Jr. High School, Phil made a friend who is Deaf and the two have remained friends throughout school and to this day.

Phil and Adonis went on to complete Interpreter Training Programs in San Diego at Mesa and Palomar Colleges, respectively. Both of them are nationally certified, and together they have accumulated over 30 years of professional interpreting experience.



Our team works diligently to fill every customer request. Your request is reviewed and we will follow up if additional information is needed. We begin scheduling immediately and typically confirm an interpreter in less than one business day. RISE maintains a 98% fill rate. You can count on us to send skilled and qualified interpreters who best fit your situation.
