Six years ago, I found myself living in a foreign country with no translatable skills to help me get a job that helped me feel good about myself and helped my family. I remember saying to my husband, “I wish I had a skill.” At that time I also spent a lot of time on Pinterest and Instagram. Okay, I still do. I came across a course that taught the skill of proofreading court documents. One thing led to another, and a few months after starting as a proofreader, I purchased scoping software, did some training, and never looked back!

I love scoping because I enjoy the challenge of working with the English language mixed with the nuances of dealing with a verbatim record. I also love what scoping has done for my life. I finally have a skill, one that allows my husband and I to travel to many countries, one that allows us to live in any country we choose, and now a skill that allows me to continue to work and be able to spend time with my daughter.
