DeMichelle-Huseby works with Golden State College to help future court reporters
Golden State students and staff meet with DeMichelle-Huseby's Shelley Moon, center.
DeMichelle-Huseby office administrator Shelley Moon personally donated eleven boxes of exhibit tabs to Golden State Court Reporting College last month.
Sandy Finch, one of the school’s co-founders, plans to use the tabs -- including exhibit tabs A-Z as well as numbers from 1-100 -- to benefit students of the Pleasanton, California-based school.
Moon met with a class of seniors who are about to finish the program and explained that her work with DeMichelle-Huseby has taught her that court reporters are in high demand.
“(Finch) went on to explain to them that we are a company that the students should look into contacting when they are ready,” Moon said. “She also told them that they didn’t have to work for an agency or court but could have the option to freelance and make a very good living.
Talking with the students helped Moon see first-hand the school’s family atmosphere and the support it gives its students.
“Sandy was extremely welcoming and very enthusiastic about what she does,” Moon said. “Sandy truly cares for the students and seemed to make it her personal goal to see every student through to completion of the program.”
Golden State trains students for judicial reporting, broadcast captioning, and communication access real-time translation, known as CART.
The college was founded in 2003 by Finch and Kelly Emerick, according to the school’s website. As co-owners of Emerick and Finch Deposition Reporting Services since 1985, the two experienced first-hand the shortage of licensed reporters in California and started the school to respond to the need for training in the San Francisco/East Bay region.
