I'm a Steno Nerd!


1. Become a certified court reporter as soon as possible!

2. Become an excellent realtime reporter!

3. Get as many certifications as I can!

4. Share the wealth by giving back to the CR community who has so kindly given much to me! I especially want to be a mentor to CR students since that's the kind of love I've received! :)

5. Take vacations... FINALLY!
When I'm a licensed reporter, my time will be freed up tremendously since I won't be going to school full-time, studying full-time, and working part-time! I'll get to come back to my world of family, friends, fun, and a lot more cash flow! Woo hoo! I'm so looking forward to this, Goal #5.

But it all starts with first accomplishing Goal #1 on my CR Bucket List!

I think I have carpal tunnel syndrome!!! HELP!!!

I'm a full-time court reporter student, part-time legal secretary/billing clerk, and freelance transcriptionist... and I think I've developed carpal tunnel syndrome!!! :(

I wanted to ask if our CSR's have carpal tunnel? If so, can/do you still work through it?

Worst case scenario is that I can no longer pursue my dream of becoming a Certified Shorthand Reporter... which would seriously be AWFUL!!! I've worked SO HARD to get to where I am now (160 WPM and counting). I don't… Continue

Christine, I haven't been on here for years! I finally became a CSR and am working as an Associate Official.  How's it going with you?

I am finally responding.  Well, as you see, fewer reporters are working in the court system.  My suggestion is if and when they afford the opportunity to work in court, drop everything and do it.  Don't wait until you are old and gray.  There is a lot of adapting you have to do.  Years ago the municipal court needed 50 people at one time.  It was my suggestion that we should create a buddy system and assign each new person to an experienced reporter.  That experienced reporter had to be available 24/7.  The experienced reporters were quite generous and sometimes a reporter would agree to be available for two or three new reporters.  The "experienced" reporters soon found out that the "new" reporters had a lot to teach us, too.  Many lasting friendships were formed.

Hi Christine,

Just getting back to CSR Nation after not being on in a long time.  Pat is still here, but Marti retired a couple years ago.  She lives near me, and I check in on her every now and then.  She's doing well.  Glad to see you!

Hey, Christine.  Just wanted to check in on you to see how you're doing.  You still in court reporting school or studying it?  How is that coming along?  Hope all is well.  :)

Please respond to either or text me to call you when you receive this...408-390-7935.  I have over 20 years of court reporting and NO carpal tunnel.  I have some information to impart that has helped me over time.
