I began my career as a freelance reporter in Sioux Falls in 1981. My fascination with court reporting began in high school when our Business Law class took a field trip to a local courthouse. When discussing my interest with my guidance counselor, he encouraged me to be a nurse. I packed away my dream for a year until a typing teacher in college asked if I'd ever thought about becoming a court reporter. That started my path to Stenotype Institute of South Dakota where I received my training and made lifelong friends.
My children are grown, married, and thankfully living close as that equates to having my five grandchildren close, too. When I'm not working I can be found on any number of golf courses trying to improve my golf game with family and friends. I'm also very proud of the fact that my daughter has followed in my court reporting footsteps as a freelance court reporter.
I am honored to be a part of the South Dakota Court Reporters Association. Our board is very hard-working, and our membership is always supportive and ready to enhance our association in any way possible.
