About Our Member
I started my Palantype training at Leeds Crown Court in 1986 and became a fully accredited Court Reporter in 1990, becoming a member of the Association of Shorthand Writers in the same year.
In 1997 I began training to become a Speech to Text Reporter, and passed the CACDP (now Signature) Deaf Awareness Exam in 1999.
I have also served on the council of both professional bodies, AVSTTR and BIVR, and I am currently a full member of BIVR.
I have over 20 years’ experience captioning in various fields. This includes: various union conferences (e.g. UNISON, where I have captioned nearly all of their annual conferences for the last 20 years, and also the RCN); large tech conferences (e.g. Microsoft Future Decoded) and medical conferences (the British Cochlear Implant Group Annual Conference) and I also work for various local authorities, government and sporting bodies, arts organisations and various charities.
I work mainly onsite, but also do provide a remote service when appropriate.
