Please allow me to introduce myself as your new 2014-2015 TCCRA President. First, I would like to thank Holly Bishop for professionally serving as our President this past year.
My career began in 1996, first as a freelance reporter with Dolores Stewart & Associates for twelve years, and now as an official reporter in County Court at Law No.1 for the past six years. I have absolutely loved both positions and cannot imagine a better career.
The court reporting industry is such a versatile field allowing us to choose from multiple career paths and earn a good living to provide for our family. We are highly regarded by our peers who recognize that a court reporter’s job is very important and highly difficult. We take the spoken work and capture history in the making.
Each of you should feel a great sense of accomplishment for being part of such an amazing field. This is why I am so excited to serve as President! Being a member of TCCRA has really helped me become more involved and appreciate being part of this great organization.
Keep your eyes open for invitations to some nighttime/happy hour get-togethers. I would like give everyone an opportunity to connect with this great network of reporters and really get to know each other better. It is encouraging to know that we have fellow court reporters we can rely upon to support one another and to ask questions, and who you know will be there for you, no matter what, when you need them. And believe me, when you need help, someone is always there for you. This is why being a member and being involved is so important.
As my first time serving as President, this will certainly be a learning experience, but I am looking forward to the challenge and the year ahead. Please feel free to contact me with your ideas, and please join us the first Wednesday of every month for our meetings in the lawyer’s lounge in the Justice Center, 5th Floor, during the lunch hour.
