About Me: I worked for 14 years as a legal secretary for two different companies, before taking an extended period of time away from work to raise a family. Fortunately, I continued using my typing skills throughout this period. So, when an opportunity to work as an audio transcriber presented itself, I decided to take the plunge! I am really enjoying the work so far. It is so varied and interesting, and I also love being able to work from the comfort of my own home – long may it continue!
Unique Info: I have a life-long passion for learning, and am currently studying part-time for a BSc degree with The Open University, which I hope to complete in 2021 (my 50th year). I am also working towards my Level 3 AMSPAR Medical Terminology qualification. I also enjoy playing the piano, and am currently working towards my Grade 5 examination.
