  • I am a Registered Professional Reporter (RPR) and Certified Realtime Reporter (CRR) - USA Certification.
    I started out my career as a legal secretary which introduced me to the workings of the courtroom, and there began my fascination with stenography. I qualified as a stenographer in 1999 having completed my training in Dublin, Ireland, where I then worked for three years covering court hearings, arbitrations, planning inquiries and tribunals.
    In 2002 I relocated to New York and trained as a deposition court reporter. Working alongside videographers, I specialised in complex litigation, hearings, arbitrations, and all types of meetings and public hearings for law firms, educational institutions, Fortune 500 companies, and governmental agencies.
    In 2011 I returned to live in Ireland and am now more focused on providing realtime. I provide services to governmental commissions of inquiries/tribunals, court hearings both on-site and remotely. I also like to travel, so when the opportunity arises I will travel for US deposition and arbitration work worldwide.
    I am fortunate to hold both an Irish and American passport!
