Court reporters are highly trained professionals. It requires discipline, a strong work ethic, great listening skills and the ability to concentrate for long periods of time ( a comfortable chair always helps).
What’s one piece of advice you’d give to someone looking to become a court reporter?
Court reporting can be challenging, but it definitely has its benefits and rewards.

I love listening to music. Music makes me happy and always puts me in a good mood. Music is always playing in my home – sometimes too loudly. I listen to all genres.

I love to travel. What’s ironic about that is I hate to fly and have to take anti-anxiety medication before each flight. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
