During my years as a  court reporting student, I have done transcription for court reporters and taught court reporting.   I have experience as a legal secretary in both small and large law firms, providing me with a knowledge of personal injury and family law, as well as corporate and tax law.

My experience in the medical field has provided me with a a broad vocabulary including anatomy, medical, and legal terminology.  Patient charting requires attention to detail and careful proofreading to avoid potentially life-altering errors.  As a health care provider, I carried malpractice insurance, so I understand the implications regarding this type of litigation.  I have worked in hospitals and outpatient surgical centers  as well as  dental offices.  I am familiar with  OSHA/MSDS, lactation, high-risk OB/GYN, ICU, cardiology, oncology, pediatrics, NICU, PICU, orthopedics, general surgery, rehabilitation, dental, oral surgery, ophthalmology, and pharmacology.

Keeping in mind that this is a verbatim transcript, I proofread for context, accuracy, consistency, formatting, punctuation, spelling and grammar.   I proofread in PDF format, marking easy-to-read notations directly above the text.  I return the corrected pages only or the entire transcript to you, whatever your preference may be.

My references include Margie Wakeman Wells’ Court Reporting: Bad Grammar/Good Punctuation, The Merriam-Webster Dictionary, Morson’s English Guide for Court Reporters, and The Gregg Reference Manual.
