My name is Linda, as you may already know. What you probably don’t know is that I was always “Little Miss Smarty-Pants,” a straight-A student. I loved school and excelled in English literature and history. I graduated high school early. I went to college and earned a bachelor’s degree in business and then a master’s degree. Never wanting to be done with school, I enrolled in and graduated from a course specifically catered to proofreading court transcripts.
I have lived in California, Colorado, and right now I live in hot, hot, hot Arizona. After a long career in medical accounting, I decided that I was tired of funding someone else’s dreams. I have dreams of my own, and one of them is to work from home so I can better care for my disabled husband and 91-year-old father.
You might say that this is my unbridled passion. All my life, whenever I received any type of document, misspellings, bad grammar, and beastly punctuation jumped right off the page. Sometimes I would grab a red pen and correct the document, but I wasn’t courageous enough to send it back to its author. That’s when I thought, “Hmmmm…what could be better than letting my natural talents and passions be the cornerstone of my career? What could be more fun than doing what I love to do and getting paid to do it?”
Because of the transcript proofreading course, I have diligently proofread thousands of transcript pages, making me confident and secure when it comes to offering my services to hard-working court reporters like you!
