Caryn Broome, Immediate Past President
When Caryn Broome went to Brown College of Court Reporting back in 2010 to start a career in court reporting, they showed her and her husband the two realtime methods available: stenography and voice writing. When Andy realized the second method was dictating into a mask, he said, “You mean she can get paid to talk? She’ll do that one.” And what started as a joke between them two of them turned into a career and passion that she has pursued ever since. Now nearly seven years later, Caryn holds four certifications, three for court reporting and one for CART Captioning, and is GCCRA’s past president and NVRA’s current treasurer.
While occasionally Caryn takes a deposition on behalf of the Deaf/Hard of hearing, it is CART Captioning and mentoring that keeps her busy these days. She believes that voice writing is a key element to being able to caption the world and is working with both GCCRA and NVRA to continue training and mentoring others in this exciting field!
