My name is Stephanie Imai, I am a mother of two and a Southern California native. I have had the pleasure of growing up in between two of the most culturally diverse cities, Los Angeles and San Diego. At a young age, I sought after international experience and travel. I worked with EF, Education First, as an International Exchange Coordinator, finding and placing foreign exchange students with host families. From there, I traveled and lived abroad.
At the age of 27, I had my first child and decided that I wanted to cultivate a skill and pursue something that was financially substantial for my family. I began attending court reporting school, Sage College, learning the art of stenography while obtaining an AA degree. My career objective is becoming a Certified Realtime Reporter providing attorneys, corporations, associations, unions, and other individual groups with accurate, complete, and secure records of pretrial depositions, arbitration, board of director meetings, stockholders and convention business sessions. I currently "write" at a speed level of 170 words per minute and hope to build up to 225 to qualify for state testing.
Outside of work and school, I am an active mom volunteering two days at my son's elementary school. I am a food lover, movie buff, and an outdoor enthusiast.
I understand what it is to strive to obtain career satisfaction and look forward to helping you do so too.
