I am a college graduate with a BA in History who has been scoping for 10 years and proofreading for 12. Available for immediate copy, daily, expedited, and regular turnaround deposition work. I have experience working with court reporters from all over the country, but most of my scoping is for reporters working in Los Angeles and San Francisco for Veritext.
