  • About Our Member

  • I am a seasoned professional with over 30 years’ experience in Speech to Text Reporting.

    I was founder and past Chair of the Association of Verbatim Speech to Text Reporters (AVSTTR) and BIVR Past president-elect in 2003. I am currently a trustee of NRCPD.

    My professionalism was recognised when I was short-listed for Communication Professional of the Year Signature Awards 2014.

    I became a fully accredited Court Reporter in 1991 with a speed of 250wpm and progressed to being an NRCPD registered Speech To Text Reporter in 1996 and passed BIVR’s Qualified Realtime Reporter (QRR) examination in 2012. I remain on the NRCPD Register to the present day.

    My career commenced as a Court Reporter in the Crown Courts including the Central Criminal Court and the Royal Courts of Justice and progressed through the years to working at Court Martials and on depositions. I now practise solely the Deaf and hard of hearing and have worked as a Speech to Text Reporter/Captioner and have done so since the early 90s. I have worked for many deaf and hearing charities including the NDCS, Action on Hearing Loss and UK Council on Deafness to name a few.

    Recently I have worked for the Blue Cross and the Wellcome Trust. I also work for private companies such as Ernst Young, Barristers’ Chambers and the Judiciary. I am used to working at conferences such as UNISON. I can also work remotely for many organisations worldwide.
