"Before court reporting, I never had a job where I could honestly say, I love going to work every single day. As a freelance reporter, no two days are ever the same. We play a critical role in producing an accurate and verbatim record of proceedings, and we have a front-row seat in the most important legal matters of people’s lives. Thus far, I would say the best experience has been the realization that no machine will ever be able to replicate the accuracy of the human brain for synthesizing speech and converting it to text."

About Tracey

Tracey graduated from Green River College with a degree in Court Reporting Technologies in 2017, and attained her RPR national certification shortly thereafter. Tracey is also licensed in the states of Washington and Oregon. She began working with Buell in 2019, and has a wide range of experience covering complex, multi-party depositions. 

Tracey is very passionate about the importance of being involved with WCRA, NCRA, and NVRA, as both a student and a professional, which allows for many connections and reconnections with students and professional steno writers and voice writers. 

When Tracey is not on her steno machine, she is currently enrolled in the International Realtime Court Reporting Institute and studying to become a Certified Realtime Verbatim Reporter, also known as a Voice Writer. She expects to earn this certification in 2024! 

In her spare time, Tracey enjoys spending time with her family and friends, spending time with her grandson, who calls her Noni, traveling, gardening, and her Bernedoodle, Rotini.
