About Me

I am a college graduate who has been scoping for 12 years and proofreading for 14.  I have also completed Best Scoping Techniques’ online scoping course. I have experience working with court reporters from all over the country, but most of my scoping is for reporters working in Los Angeles for Veritext.  References available upon request.
