Hello Kerry!
That is an unusual request...I do not know how to find a Colombian  
Sign Language interpreter in the United States...

But perhaps an International Sign Language Interpreter might be an  

In Europe, there are "International Interpreters" who have the rare  
skill of being able to sign with signs that stem from a series of  
western signed languages, and for some Deaf people, international  
interpreters are very helpful...

Other Deaf people, from countries that are not in the west, tell me

the Deaf people you are servicing...

I can put you in touch with two International Interpreters our  
organization hired once, for the 2005 SignWriting Symposium in  
Brussels. One of those interpreters is an American, so perhaps she

Colombian Sign Language interpreter?
