Our new deposition scheduling and transcript production associate Stephanie Pendergast joins us to kick off 2017. If you are a new client, Stephanie will process your requests for court reporters to cover hearings, trials, or depositions as well as handle the production and distribution of your transcripts and exhibits. If you’re a current client, you will be receiving the same friendly, efficient service with prompt turnaround you’ve come to expect from CompuScripts — with a different accent.
Stephanie is a native of Wisconsin, but she has called South Carolina home for 15 years. Along with her 14-year-old son, Riley, and her 10-year-old daughter, Ella, Stephanie is also an animal lover, which puts her in good company here at the office. Let’s meet Stephanie!
CompuScripts Court Reporters: What encouraged you to accept this position with our company?
Stephanie Pendergast: I read a lot of reviews of CompuScripts, and I was impressed by the company’s history. I also like working with a local business.
CS: What experiences do you bring to the position of ordering and production associate?
SP: I’ve worked in client relations for over 10 years. What I hope our customers will appreciate is that I’m organized, detail-oriented, and prompt.
CS: What have you enjoyed most so far while working with us?
SP: The people! Whether I’m working with Bruce to schedule a video deposition or with Maurine to set up a videoconference, everyone has been able to answer all my questions. We’ve also had a couple of staff luncheons since I’ve been here, and everyone is very friendly. They definitely know where to find good take-out!
CS: You’re a native of Wisconsin. Have you had a chance to explore much of South Carolina since you moved to Columbia?
SP: I love to travel in my free time. The great thing about working with our court reporters is that they’re like travel guide books. We have resident court reporters in Charleston, Columbia, Florence, Hilton Head, Greenville, Myrtle Beach, and Rock Hill, so if I need a restaurant recommendation or the name of a great family attraction, I always know who to call.
CS: Finally, what have you learned about our clients since you took over the deposition scheduling and production job?
SP: I’ve learned that a lot of them have been with us for over 20 years and that they expect high-quality realtime court reporters and legal videographers from CompuScripts. They may need an immediate realtime rough draft or an expedited transcript, but I’m ready for the challenge. I look forward to speaking with many clients, old and new, in 2017.
