I have 20+ years of transcription experience in all areas, including life flight, transplant surgery, Oncology research clinic and pharmacology, as well as Psychiatry documents from clinic to court documentation. I have also worked on Speech Recognition, transcription, editing, QA, and training. I started in transcription then moved to editor, and was chosen to assist in the creation of a new nationwide mentor program. As one of four editors, along with an operations manager and business manager, we defined our goals, crafted the parameters of the program, and hand-picked a variety of MTs (recent graduates, new hires with experience, QA issues, and foreign-born MTs). Using Excel we crafted a training program, setting goals for each mentee, tracking work volume, QA, identifying individual issues and assisting the MT with personal goal-setting and cultivation of tools to assist them in reaching their personal goals, as well as bringing the MTs metrics in line with other team members. With access to the Training Departments tools, as well as complete access to the employee website and Centra, I was able to assign additional training, add information to the company/team websites, or craft a program through Centra, as needed, to assist the MT. Throughout this time period, I also gathered the many reporting forms used by the various branches of the company, and combined, condensed, deleted, or recreated the forms used, as they pertained to MT progress and training reports used by Supervisors post-training. Spreadsheets directly pertaining to MT progress report tracking, as well as spreadsheets used for individual progress and weekly meetings, were constantly undergoing adjustments and addition as well. Once the length of the program was determined and final reports on the initial group of mentees was reported, the mentor program was given the green light for initialization. Our duties shifted to creating the mentor department. Our main considerations were how many mentors do we hire (qualifications and payroll were obviously not part of our duties, however, I was responsible at a later point, for creating the job description that was posted in the careers section of the website). We defined the scope of the new mentor duties with regard to number and type of MTs. We also fine-tuned the reporting process, adding and subtracting spreadsheets, quality reports, and progress reports to the MT and the MTs supervisor, the Mentor Program supervisor, and the board of directors. Once this was completed, we then defined and implemented the training program for new mentors; compiling initial training videos and materials, as well as guidelines for the mentors to use in their new positions. Because of my position, while I was folded into the Mentor Program, I was also privileged to have a fair amount of autonomy with regard to the disposition of mentees in my charge. I also created and maintained the team metrics on a weekly and monthly basis, performing and monitoring QA, account status, programs each were certified in, and based on these reports I pulled the MT into the mentor program, assigned them extra educational training via supervisor access to training website, assigned courses to assist MTs in elevating experience level or additional training on other platforms to allow account diversity, and monitored time on platform versus line output. The spreadsheet that I created allowed the team supervisor to see the status of each MT on our team (60-100 MTs) at a single glance. This also encompassed the editors on our team, and their status. Because I had more experience than average and my participation in the mentor program creation, I assisted our team supervisor in many day-to-day operations. These included but were not limited to: Pulling documents that were questioned by a facility and following through with resolution and contact with said facility, monitoring STATs and TAT and assigning work where necessary, covered as supervisor on duty on weekends, monitoring TAT and STATs, filling in when supervisor was out sick or travelling, etc. I was responsible for training weekend supervisors on software and assigning access and password privileges, and function of weekend supervisor. I also trained MTs on new software. The structure of this company was set up so that the Operations Manager oversaw 3-6 Operations Supervisors. Each Supervisor had 60-100 MTs/editors. There was a Mentor assigned to the Supervisors with larger teams, but at the very least there was 1 Mentor to Manager. Initially, I functioned as Mentor to the 3 Supervisors assigned to our Manager (these 3 functioned as a unit with respect to account handling. The Manager had another set of 3 supervisors assigned as well, to one of the company’s largest accounts on another software platform). This meant that there were 180-300 MTs at any given time needed to be peripherally monitored. I was also required to set and carry out a project every quarter. One project proposal regarded team metrics, as well as a project proposal regarding the use and training of various support software used by the MTs. I set up a large training class, pulling from all 4 of the teams, holding conference training calls, since it was apparent from metrics obtained from Oracle, that this tool was not being used optimally by the MTs. Also, the company was in the process of mainstreaming some of the tools, which meant those MTs folded into Spheris when they absorbed a smaller transcription company, needed to learn to use Shorthand before their current InstaText was discontinued. The continuing evolution of the program had begun to expand, and Mentors were being utilized to assist as the company changed transcription platforms. Those of us with more experience were scheduled to join conference calls with Supervisors and clients, to iron out account preferences as they were scheduled for conversion. We would then monitor the dictation crossover from existing platform to new platform, and then test the functions to assess functionality. As each account came on line, I would check the team metric spreadsheet and sign the requisite MT up for platform and account training, complete paperwork for platform download, then set MT access to features and accounts, as well as assigning passwords. At each point in the above processes, I would need to enter the personnel database to update employee profiles and education. Once a month Career Step held an on-line conference call, and we would enter and answer questions for the impending graduates. Not only am I proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as Net meeting and Centra, I was also proficient on the five platforms that were utilized at varying times throughout my 7 years with Spheris. I had, when I was downsized, worked on more than 40 accounts. My ability to adapt across platforms and multiple accounts was as instrumental in my promotion, as my supervisory experience. I have had a great deal of experience dealing with multiple personalities in many different situations, not only face-to-face, but also in the often challenging atmosphere of the virtual world and telephone conferencing. As you may know, it is difficult to encapsulate all of the functions performed on a day-to-day basis within a letter; however I did try to highlight the pertinent duties. Not only have I had recent supervisory and training experience in transcription, I have also been manager of a convenience store, merchandising and ordering, as well as loss prevention and management and profit decisions. I was also Supervisor of the restaurant, tavern, and room service of a 600+ bed 4-star Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center and a Radisson Hotel. Both of these positions required supervision of 40-50 employees. I have always been a hands-on manager, preferring where possible to lead through example to set the standards and pace where I have worked in the past. While my past employment experience has been varied, the varying supervisory and management skills have accrued only combine to strengthen my skill set.

I'm a 22 year old free lance illustrator/full time whovian, situated in Chester, Cheshire UK. I live with my husband and son (who we are raising to be well-versed in all of Geekdom) and our many rabbits! I have always been obsessed with art and drawing from a young age. One of my proudest achievments from my childhood was doing a whole mural at my primary school by myself at the age of 11 because my teachers liked what I had painted in my art book. My work is inspired from all the things that I enjoy and obsess over. Basically I am a nerd that loves to draw, and I love what I do. I also raise loads of money for the Cystic Fibrosis trust by doing all kind of crazy things.

I am currently studying photography at New York Institute of Photography. I have always had a love for art and photography has always been a small passion of mine that has turned into an even larger passion in my life. The thought of being able to caption a single moment in time is like a adrenaline rush for me, because without a camera in my hand, that moment is gone forever. I have found that I have the ability to take something small and even simple and turn it into a work of art. I am currently working for a website owner whom makes hand made costume jewelry and I do all of the photography for her entire website.
