What is your title, the name of your firm, and how long have you been there?

California Regional Director.  Litigation Services, LLC.  September 2016.

 

How did you find your way into the position you hold with your company?

I have been in the court reporting industry since the late ‘70s, first working in my mother’s agency, then owning the agency, then merged with a local competitor, and then joined Litigation Services so I could offer more substantial services and locations to our clients.  Since I’ve covered the gamut of responsibilities in our industry from production, calendaring, management and client services, the company decided I was the ideal person to lead our California business development team.

 

What do you love the most about your job?

The people I get to serve day in and day out.  I really enjoy helping people and solving problems.  If I am able to help someone so that it makes their job easier, then it’s a successful day for me.

 

How did you come to be a BP of the Chapter?

I’ve known Ceanne Herndon for years.  Being part of an organization opens up the opportunity to help one another. 

 

Michelle Sherry, Courtney Hunt and Deann Floyd. Michelle and Courtney serve clients in San Francisco, East Bay and South Bay.  Love these ladies!

What are your hobbies?

Eating….hahaha!  Cooking, cycling, scuba diving, traveling, reading, trying something new.

 

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? 

A singer, but I quickly realized I didn’t have the pipes to sing.

What was the greatest moment of your life?

I have been blessed with many wonderful moments in my life.  One that stands out is taking care of my ailing grandmother.  She spoiled me while I was growing up, and it was so special to take care of her with such love and tenderness like she took care of me.

 

What's on your playlist?

Lots of music!  Anything by Van Morrison, Warren Haynes, Amos Lee, Colin Hay…goodness, the list goes on and on.

 

What are you reading right now? What’s your favorite book or character?  Whose your favorite author?

Failure Is Not An Option, by Gene Kranz  I like true stories, history, but I also love a book that just takes me away on a magic carpet ride
.
 

Describe an ideal weekend getaway for you.

Going up to Boonville and getting lost in nature, then stopping by a winery for a tasting, followed by dinner at Boonville Hotel.  With my husband, of course!

 

What’s your favorite place outside of California?

France

 

Do you collect anything?

Vinegars, olive oils, mustards, salts…I love accoutrements.

 

What is your six-word memoir?

Always live life to its fullest.

 

What don’t you have time for that you would like to pursue?

Traveling to distant lands.

 

What is the best piece of advice anyone has ever given you?

Treat others as you would like to be treated.

 

It’s karaoke night.  What song do you choose, and why?

Up To The Mountain.  I always wanted to do something in my lifetime that had a tremendous impact on those less fortunate.  Someone once told me that only a few incredible people, like Martin Luther King, Jr., have the ability to create aha moments, like that portrayed in Patty Griffin’s song, however, even the smallest effort can touch someone in a way that will forever help them.  This song moves me and reminds me that as long as I am alive I will keep doing everything I can to help others and every little bit helps.
  

If you had three wishes what would they be?

Happiness, health and a full belly of good food would be blessed on everyone every day.  No one would ever have to experience loneliness.   Desserts aren’t fattening!
