I trained as a secretary back in 1994, during the summer vacation of my first year at university, in order to go temping in the holidays and I hold Pitman first-class passes in Typing, Audio Typing and Word Processing. My current typing speed, as measured on various online tests, is around 105wpm. I’ve been working as a self-employed transcriptionist since 2007, with all my work coming via word-of-mouth recommendation until I joined the list of freelancers on the books of a large London transcription agency in February 2014. I now mainly proofread transcripts for them and only type for my direct clients.
I live on a small croft on the beautiful north coast of Scotland with my husband, spaniel and two horses.
