“I decided to rewrite a few jobs, applying what I’ve learned in only ONE session from Anissa and it’s been a HUGE difference in my untrans! I was SHOCKED! I would gladly take the time to rewrite a 100-page job because I know that it will save me a ton of editing time after training with Anissa. I’ve been unenthused about reporting for a decade. I’ve found that the spark is reemerging after years!”

Linda Ramirez
Court Stenographer

“In Anissa’s training, you will receive 100% of her positive attitude, enthusiasm and passion for helping reporters! After ONE session with her using her foolproof method, my untranslates nearly disappeared! Anissa gave me that fresh-out-of-school, my-fingers-are-on-fire, I-can-do-anything feeling! Anissa’s program is a big, giant WOW!!!  Her program is an absolute MUST!  It pays for itself after ONE session.”

Katherine Laney

I didn’t suddenly get more skilled.  I suddenly got more coached, and that has helped me to get the most out of my skill.

Michael A. Bouley, RDR

The ROI on training with Anissa is immeasurable!  I have seen reporters go from being scared to death to being able to hook up to realtime and output to multiple attorneys with daily copy using real-time scopists — with confidence! Professionally trained stenographers are a must if the profession is going to survive. Get certified! You will never regret investing in yourself!


“Anissa is second to none as a trainer. I just completed fabulous training with her and I highly recommend it to reporters.”

Christina Sarisky, RPR

“Anissa is a phenomenal teacher! She’s really found her second true calling.”


“Training with Anissa was invaluable! It was well worth the investment.  I realized how much I was paying to the IRS every year and decided it was time to start spending some of that money on bettering my skills.  It’s the best thing I ever did, and I had fun while I was doing it! My writing looks so much better. I have cleaned up a lot of word boundary issues and learned lots of new briefs at the same time!  Anissa is so calm and patient and seems to have an answer for any conflict. Thanks, Anissa!”

Nancy Towler

“When I started One-on-One Training with Anissa, I don’t think I had a clear understanding of what we were going to do. I love what we’re doing! And I now understand that having the best dictionary you possibly can is what makes you a great reporter.”

K. Ince

“Anissa’s workshops make a difference! Because of the consistent system that I learned in ‘What’s in a Name,’ my jobs are smooth sailing! Her presentation on brief families inspired me to add a new family every day. One brief family alone has saved me well over 10,000 strokes in the last two years! I’m a better and more confident writer! Anissa is a gift to our profession.”

Claire Baldi, RPR

“I felt like my job was in a rut. I saw a decline in my skills and wasn’t sure why. Training with Anissa has changed my life! I’m seeing improvement every single day!”

Kelly Hassell, RPR

“Anissa’s method makes sense in my brain, so I am able to make the changes stick when I’m writing.  The way she organizes the steps gives me hope that I CAN accomplish my goal of writing realtime and passing the certification. I am grateful beyond words for your sincere enthusiasm and coaching for my success!”
