  • I trained to become a Palantypist in 1990 at Inner London Crown Court. I qualified with the Association of Shorthand Writers in 1991. The company I was working for won the contract for the Central Criminal Court (‘Old Bailey’) in 1993 so I began working there in 1993. I worked there until 2003 when I left to pursue a career as an STTR reporter. I am a Member of BIVR and the NRCPD and AVSTTR. I mainly do STT real-time work but also still produce DARTs digital transcripts from Crown Courts. I have covered transcripts and write-outs for the General Medical Council and the General Dental Council. I have covered webinars and also Adobe Connect lectures. I passed my deaf Awareness course. I have passed the QRR2 with distinction. I have passed the RQP exam with the IPS n February 2019. I have an LLB (hons) law degree and passed the Solicitors’ Professional Examination in 1993.
