About Me

Hello! I am Sara Woodard. I'm a happy proofreader because I get to help court reporters make sure their transcripts are spotless so they can spend their time churning out more transcripts.

I've been an avid reader my entire life. Now that I'm older, that love of reading has transformed into a love of improving the written word.

I'm a single mom to my silly 7-year-old daughter. In my free time, I love to read (not a surprise), drink coffee, and play Minecraft.
