Extended Bio Profile:
As a young person, I enjoyed typing speed contests and I worked as a typist for a newspaper office, typing on the early computers. Then followed a period of time where I worked at a law firm, which also served as a District Attorney's Office. At that point, I became interested in becoming a court reporter. Next, I worked for a year as a bookkeeper in an electrical firm, which helped to educate me in business and administration. During this time, I was enrolled in the LaSalle Stenotype correspondence course to learn machine shorthand. After that, I enrolled in three years of education to receive my degrees in both Court Reporting and Legal Secretary,

After beginning a small court reporting business in Stevens Point, WI, I became an Official Court Reporter and Court Commissioner in Portage County, Wisconsin. After several years, when my family moved to Fond du Lac, WI, I began the business that I presently own, Worth Court Reporting. This business continued until the present. I was grateful to be able to help support my children, and also to help several new court reporters get started in the profession of court reporting.

I tested for and achieved the Registered Professional Reporter (RPR) status, early in my career, and I also passed the Merit Literary testimony and the Merit Written Exam.

In my career I have had experience in reporting: Depositions, court hearings, arbitrations, public hearings, focus hearings - many types of hearings. My court reporting experience is widely varied and includes technical, medical, and products liability testimony.
