Elisabeth was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. She graduated from Lowell High School in 1982. Elisabeth received her Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems from DeVry University (formerly DeVry Institute of Technology), City of Industry, CA in 1987. She then went on to earn her court reporting credential from Sierra Valley College in Fresno, California in 1990. In that same year, Elisabeth tested for, passed and attained her license as a certified shorthand reporter in the State of California.

After obtaining her court reporting license, Elisabeth worked for an established firm in San Francisco for 10 years. In late 1999, Elisabeth branched out on her own, establishing her own boutique court reporting firm. Over the years, she has been successful in building an excellent team of skilled, professional, reliable and courteous court reporters throughout the state.

In 2012, Elisabeth tested for and achieved her California Realtime Reporting license. In that same year, she acquired her notary license in the State of California.

Elisabeth considers it a privilege to have had the opportunity to build the professional relationships she has established throughout the years of building her business.

She is truly grateful for the success of her business that is due solely to loyal and supportive clients and relationships built over the years. She considers her greatest and most meaningful and fulfilling accomplishment to be, as a single mother, having raised her daughter, Victoria.
