    Having completed a court Reporting 225 wpm evening programme in New York in 1993, in 2000, I began working for the BBC and completed their stenography training programme.
    Whilst at the BBC, Red Bee Media and Ericsson, I worked across all channels at BBC, Sky News, Sky Sports, Channel 4, Channel 5 and BT Sport. I captioned all genres of live output including news, documentary, sports, and entertainment.
    From 2018 to now, I enjoy providing verbatim real-time speech to text communication support one-to-one, onsite or remotely for clients and for larger audiences in lectures, theatres and conferences. Topics include medical/educational lectures at King’s, LSE and The Royal College of Nursing, theatre work and presentations at The Royal Academy, The Royal Society and Wellcome Collection, in conferencing for Microsoft, Amazon and I have also worked for charities NDCS, NADP, Leonard Cheshire and The Ear Foundation.
    In 2019, I joined the National Registers for Communication Professionals (NRCPD).
    I have a level 1 Deaf Awareness certification.
