This picture sums up much of our life. Creating a business while growing our families has been one of the most challenging things we have ever done. Five years ago, Whitney and I started our court reporting business from our homes. Whitney had a one-year-old boy, and I was six months pregnant with my son. Luckily, we had a super supportive family. Our husbands encouraged us to go for it, and our parents did whatever they could to help grow our business. Our mom and dad would meet us in parking lots outside law firms, and our mom would bring us chocolate chip cookies she baked the night before to bring to our current and prospective clients. Occasionally, when peering out the window, we could see our kids being chased down a sidewalk or through a lobby, all while the attorneys had no idea it was our family waiting for us. Since then we’ve both had daughters and continually grown our business, each day bringing successes and challenges we could never imagine. Pictured here are our precious babies, a rambunctious group that unknowingly motivated Whitney and me to be great mothers and dedicated business owners. We are proud to be family owned, women owned and a minority-owned business. To all our clients, thank you for making our dreams come true and allowing us to be part of your personal and professional lives. Reporters, we love you all and send respect and profound gratitude for the often thankless hard work.
