I am a graduate of BS Nursing and registered professional nurse in the Philippines with complete training in the field. For the last three years, I've been transcribing on a daily basis. From the day I started transcribing, I have loved the profession, and I am learning to love it more. It is a way for me to stay at home with my two toddlers while I earn to support our needs. Since then, I have improved my skills and made a lot of clients happy and kept them with me. I am a big proponent of continuous learning. I find that I learn a lot with transcribing and proofreading, and so I believe making transcripts is a worthwhile job that enables me to earn and learn and to help you as a client. On transcripts (and all outputs), I am ridiculously into details and grammar and punctuation. It is quite annoying for me to see written works with simple grammatical or punctuation errors. I believe in simplicity and neatness, and I put a great deal of effort into making neat and accurate works. It is my pleasure to be given the opportunity to work and showcase my skills and talents. I am always looking forward in building a long-term working relationship, and with you as well. All the best!
