Today’s steno jobS

Today was a hectic day.

First, we started off with the penalty hearing of the below job. ¬†Normally I don’t disclose the cases that I work on for privacy reasons but this is a public record and the main premise was even published in the Continue reading


New reporting location today!


One of the coolest things about being a stenographer is that every day is different and you might get to work out of new locations!  Today, I worked in this office which was all about land surveying.  All around the room, there were lots of artifacts and old maps as decor (historical compasses and telescopes).  I felt like I was in a mini museum lol.   Continue reading
