As you must know by now, my name is Allison (hi!!). I am a New York City native currently living on beautiful eastern Long Island. When I’m not busy proofreading transcripts, I like to catch a movie or perhaps a Broadway play, relax at the beach, visit farm stands and wineries on the North Fork, or take a class or a course on a topic I find interesting. Occasionally, I like to dabble in nature photography. Most of all, I love spending time with the important people in my life.
Before I got into proofreading transcripts, I had a lengthy career in biomedical research. As much as I enjoyed working in a laboratory environment and devoting my efforts to the discovery of new knowledge about our physical world, over time I began to crave a different sort of challenge, and I had an idea that I wanted to work with words in some way. After being laid off from my research job in 2015, I became aware of proofreading with a specific focus in the transcripts of legal proceedings. As a person who always had a sharp eye for spotting errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation, I had a feeling this type of work could be the perfect fit for me. I was right! Several months of hard work and training later, Fine Focus Proofreading, LLC, was born! I couldn’t be happier to have a new career that I love where I can use my skills and talents to help court reporters succeed.
Why “Fine Focus,” you might wonder? On a microscope, there is something called a fine focus knob, which helps the researcher observe a sample of cells or tissue down to the subtlest of details. It is this level of meticulous scrutiny that I apply to each and every transcript I proofread for my clients, and I would consider it my honor and my pleasure to extend my services to you.
