    Experienced Transcriber, Expert Computer Technician.

    United States - Last active: 12/04/2013 - Tests: 1

    My goal is simple: To demonstrate that I am a valuable resource with integrity and vision. I enjoy creating things and challenging myself. I work efficiently and accurately. My work is thorough and I give attention to detail. I started doing transcription in 2009 and found that I was good at it, enjoyed it, and was surprised that having excellent grammar wasn't only a benefit in college Literature classes. Most of my transcriptions have been reviewed at 100-99% accuracy and adherence to preferred style-guide, with none below 92% accuracy and adherence to style-guide. I also enjoy being a computer technician and networking guru. I began working on computers in 1998, when I was fourteen, and I never stopped. Being patient, attentive, and focused are all traits one must possess to identify and correct the myriad of issues that can arise when you mix people with technology. I know these qualities assist me in other areas, as well. I don't quit just because something is difficult, and I don't slack just because something is easy. I have spent many years in customer service, understanding that really no matter your career, it is all about the customer and producing results that meet or exceed their needs and expectations. I am aware of my own worth and know that I can be an asset in providing the exceptional service that customers expect from the professionals they trust.
