The National Registers of Communication Professionals working with Deaf and Deafblind People (NRCPD) “exist to protect the public by regulating communication and language professionals who work with deaf and deafblind people.” This organisation has registrants from a number of professions, including Speech-to-Text Reporters, lipspeakers and sign language interpreters.

Whilst it is not currently mandatory for STTRs/captioners to be on the Register, many of our members are long-standing registrants and submit Continuing Professional Development units for this purpose.

  • About Our Member

  • 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!
