Mary Isabel Proofs
About: As a PDF proofreader, I make the process really simple for you! No matter what software you use, I can proof your transcript. Give me the date you need it back by, and I will send you only the annotated pages. I can assure you it will be on time. I understand how busy you are, and I value your time, your work, and your business.
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. I definitely wasn’t one of those kids afraid to read aloud in class! I went on to obtain a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Southern Mississippi and became skilled at critical analysis, editing and revision, and of course, proofreading! As an undergraduate, I took on a role at my campus’s Speaking & Writing Center as a peer tutor for students needing assistance with their speeches and essays. Later, I gained experience as a legal assistant for a personal injury law firm. Legal documents and jargon are not unfamiliar to me, and I enjoy the research and ensuring accuracy processes. As a lover of literature, I have proofread for more general projects. I know that transcript proofreading is a very specialized form of proofreading, which is why I took the steps to be properly trained in it. I have immense respect for our court reporters and the essential work they do. It is my hope to make their lives easier by maintaining the quality and accuracy of their work.
Fun facts: Even though I’m not a native English speaker, English is pretty much all I know! Tagalog was my first language, and I learned English at four years old.

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.

Fun facts: Singing is a passion of mine, and I have been in the Houston Show Choir for three years now. We sing and dance all throughout Houston, and share the joy of singing to all who will listen! I’ve been married for 33 years, with five amazing grown children. My biggest thrill lately is that my first grandchild was born this past January. I love being a new grandma! I’m also addicted to TV and movies. When I’m not working or performing, you’ll find me in front of my TV!

Lisa M. Eldridge
About: My name is Lisa Eldridge. Not to be confused with Lisa Eldridge, the makeup artist, I am Lisa Eldridge, the mark-up artist! I love reading and catching errors in the written word. Transcription and proofreading go together, and I am happy to apply these skills to legal proofreading as well. Send your files to me as a PDF, and I will send them back with clear annotations in a timely fashion. While I won’t be able to help with your makeup, I WILL be able to help with your transcripts!
Special skills/experience: I love to read, and what really gives me satisfaction is being able to fix errors in the written word. My background consists of over 16 years of medical and general transcription experience. Because of this and the fact that many of my general transcription projects have been for pharmaceutical companies, medical terminology is my specialty. In addition, I have experience with general proofreading, having proofread book and e-book projects for authors. As a busy mom and business owner, I understand the pressure that comes with trying to find a work-life balance. I would love to help ease your stress, allowing you to turn in polished transcripts and maybe even have some free time in your day.
Fun facts: I’m an avid gardener. Caring for my plants is something I look forward to every season. Thomas Jefferson, the master gardener of master gardeners, said in his later years, “Though I am an old man, I am but a young gardener.” I love that about gardening—always something to learn!

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.
