  • About Our Member

  • I qualified as a court reporter in 1992 after working in Liverpool Crown Court since 1989. I am a member of BIVR as a Qualified Real-time Reporter (QRR), and I am registered as Speech To Text Reporter (STTR) with the National Register of Communication Professionals working with Deaf People (NRCPD). I am also a member of the Association of Verbatim Speech to Text Reporters (AVSTTR)

    I am based in the Liverpool area but I support numerous deaf or disabled and non-disabled organisations regularly all over the UK providing real-time speech to text reporting and same day transcripts for AGMs, board meetings and panels where my text is projected to a large screen for everybody to read.

    I also support numerous Access To Work clients in their employment such as employees of Birmingham, York, Chester, Wrexham City Councils. I also support a university social work lecturer, health and safety consultant, probation officer, social worker, NLHF adviser, IT consultant amongst many others.

    I also support people for benefits tribunals and PIP assessments.

    I also hold a level 1 qualification in British Sign Language (BSL) and have qualifications in IT.
