ABOUT

After nearly two decades of working as a paralegal for a medical malpractice attorney, I suddenly found myself relocating back to my small Montana hometown.  Though a perfect choice for my family, the move left me reeling and without the opportunity to work in the field I had grown to love.  So, in an effort to keep my foot in the legal field, so to speak, I created a way to stay home with our children while putting my paralegal experience to work in another aspect of the legal field.  Scoping.  Scoping has been a natural fit for me with my strong background in legal and medical terminology, legal procedure, writing and editing legal documents, and punctuation and grammar.  

As a graduate of ISS, I am proud to be called a scopist.  I am excited about my profession and in providing the utmost in professionalism to my scoping clientele.
