In 1981, she went to work for Lane County Courthouse in Eugene, Oregon, where she served as official court reporter to the Hon. William A. Beckett, judge of the Circuit Court. During that time, she was active in the Oregon Court Reporters Association, eventually holding the position of president.

In 1991 she moved to the island of St. Croix, USVI, where she reported for twenty-three years. Home to the HOVENSA refinery, she worked with top litigators in the U.S. and throughout the world reporting in complex mass tort litigation, personal injury, and employment law.
