  • About Our Member

  • I was educated at Victoria College, Belfast and went on to obtain a BA (Hons) degree in Classics at Queen's University. Thereafter I trained as a stenographer at the College of Business Studies. I have been a Member of the British Institute of Verbatim Reporters for over thirty years.

    For the past thirty-two years I have been working as a freelance stenographer in civil and criminal hearings all over the world, specialising for the last twenty-three years in real-time reporting, having obtained LiveNote Real-time Accreditation in 1996. I also have extensive experience in US deposition work.
