Deborah Schuster

Precision Proofing by Deborah

About: Hi, I’m Deborah! I love to proofread PDF transcripts for busy court reporters. My work career after college started in the beginning days of the closed captioning industry and continued for over 35 years. I am passionate about client relationships and words. I live in Southern California with my musician husband, Bob, and Percy, our terrier mix.

Special skills/experience: Over the past year, I have proofread thousands of pages of transcripts to court reporter preferences. My degree is in journalism, but I began working in the emerging closed captioning industry and fell in love with writing captions. I moved into sales and marketing where, among other duties, I interacted with realtime stenocaptioners who captioned live programs for my clients, including the major TV networks and TV studios. I understand how steno works, and I have great respect for the challenges court reporters face. I work well under pressure and with deadlines after years in the TV industry. I love creating relationships and learning how I can best help those with whom I work.

Fun facts: My 15 minutes of fame was being interviewed on Good Morning America when live captioning debuted on the show. I explained how the new live cc technology worked. It was a blast and a highlight of my career and life!

Tristan Brant

Brant Proofreading, LLC

I am a registered nurse and proofreader from Western Pennsylvania, trained by Elizabeth Wiegner, The Proofreading Business Coach.

I would be happy to help you by proofreading your PDF transcripts! I am available for immediate through standard turnaround.

Nice to meet you and have a great day! 😃

Special skills/experience: PDF proofreader helping court reporters be happy one transcript at a time.

Paige Brown

Paige Proofs

About: I specialize in making your transcripts the best they can be. My laser focus on consistency, your preferences, and those maddening grammar rules will make your transcripts shine. I understand that you have a high-stress job, and I aim to lighten that load so that you can move on to other transcripts or spend more time pursuing your passions outside of being a top-notch court reporter.

Special skills/experience: When I graduated from college with degrees in business and English, I had not one inkling of what to do with those seemingly random degrees. I stumbled into an entry-level editing job for an anime magazine, and so began my love of proofreading. Sure, I enjoyed other aspects of that job, but being the last set of eyes on a 180-page magazine felt like an exhilarating treasure hunt. Anything I missed was soon printed in black and white with no do-overs. No pressure!

A few years ago, I began freelance writing, editing, and proofreading for businesses, and I once again learned that proofreading fills my cup the most. When I heard about the unique niche of transcript proofreading, I was energized to learn this new skill. Graduating from this course gave me all the tools I need to be the transcript proofreader who will make your life easier!

Fun facts: Spelling bees are my jam, and I have never forgotten exiting the district spelling bee on the word “exchequer.” My kids are required to know how to spell it just in case it ever comes up! That same year, my winning word in the school bee was “cowhide.” Significantly easier for a Texas girl!

Special skills/experience: All my life I’ve loved to read. English came to me quickly as a child, and I developed a knack for grammar and fell in love with the language.

Sheila Prochnow

S Prochnow Proofreader

About: I’m Sheila, the “S” in S Prochnow Proofreader, and I deliver peace of mind to hardworking court reporters who need prompt, reliable, accurate PDF proofreading. I’ve been a word nerd and grammar geek ever since I was a kid watching Schoolhouse Rock. My professional experience includes three years proofreading legal and financial document translations at a multinational accounting firm, two years as a freelance general proofreader, and three years as a university language testing researcher.

Special skills/experience: Have you ever noticed when you read a transcript over and over that everything starts to blur together, and your eye skips over small details like missing words and spelling or punctuation errors? Scientists call this “typo blindness.” It happens because your highly efficient brain already knows the correct details and fills them in for you. Your solution? Call in an experienced proofreader with a sharp eye for detail (like me!). I catch the tiny errors your busy eyes can no longer see, and make clear annotations to your transcript so you can finalize it with confidence and assurance.

Fun facts: Reading is my #1 pastime: I love escaping into graphic novels, humorous essays, and Japanese crime fiction. I’m a big fan of Wes Anderson movies, and I’ll watch anything starring Frances McDormand. Foods I’m obsessed with are fresh apples from my home state (Michigan), grass-fed rib eyes, and real croissants.

Special skills/experience: As an avid reader, word/grammar nerd, a lover of medical and police dramas and reality shows, *Dom-Dom,* I look forward to parlaying these interests into a career in legal transcript proofreading. I will be your second pair of eyes to proofread transcripts for you, the busy court reporter. I would love to be part of your team to help make this last stage of the process as easy as possible. I will work diligently to proofread your transcripts for readability and to your preferences; while maintaining grammar and spelling integrity. I stay up so you don’t have to!

Fun facts: I prefer to go by my middle name, Renee. I’ve always been a night owl. I love to laugh! I have a dry…some would say “sarcastic” sense of humor. I can easily go down the gif/meme rabbit hole if I don’t restrain myself.

Mocha Proofreading Services

About: Hello! I’m Candace and I’m the proofreader behind Mocha Proofreading Services. Reading, listening, and watching crime drama/true crime is a favorite past-time of mine. Proofreading transcripts allows me access to the legal world and combines it with my love of reading. I view myself as a member of the court reporter’s team, helping you reduce your to-do list and giving you peace of mind. I meticulously review your transcripts so you are assured that inconsistencies and errors are corrected and your work is ready to submit.

Special skills/experience: I’m an avid reader and I enjoy staying up to date on ever-evolving punctuation rules, especially as they apply to court reporting. My professional background is in the medical field as a registered nurse. This experience affords me a strong comfort level with medical terminology and with sensitive subjects in general. As a nurse, I have experience working under pressure, on a team, and can focus on the important details. My experience means I’m flexible and can easily tailor my proofreading style to your preferences and needs.

Fun facts: I’m married, have a two-year-old daughter, and a dog named Prissy. Mocha is a combination of my maiden and married names – and I love coffee! I enjoy baking new recipes and rarely bake the same thing twice (for better or worse). I love to travel and visit new places of all kinds, ranging from the World’s Largest Pistachio in New Mexico to the Eiffel Tower in Paris!

This experience, combined with my extensive transcript proofreading training, provides me with a solid foundation to effectively proofread legal transcripts for maximum accuracy.

Fun facts: I’m a proud lefty! I own a travel trailer and have even proofread for clients in it while on vacation. My favorite animals are elephants and orcas. I unexpectedly became an adoptive mother overnight at age 43 and my son is my greatest joy.
