White House stenographer turns experience into 7-figure deal, possible movie

Have you ever wondered how you could turn your stenography skills into a seven-figure paycheck? One stenographer has.

Universal Pictures has optioned “From the Corner of the Oval,” a book proposal by Rebecca Dorey-Stein, a former White House stenographer. (The Hollywood Reporter)

“From the Corner of the Oval” follows a woman living in Washington D.C. who goes from serving cocktails to lobbyists to being hired as a stenographer in the Obama White House.

The Washington Post called it “West Wing” meets “The Office.” Both publications reported Dorey-Stein received a seven-figured deal for the book. That doesn’t include what the film version could earn her.

If you know Dorey-Stein, The Washington Post might like to hear from you. It reported “Unlike some cable/social media-ubiquitous Obama alums, Dorey-Stein has a low profile. Public records say she worked at the White House from 2014 to 2016, but her LinkedIn and Twitter profiles have been removed.”

Instant Pay for Reporters

While seven figures is an exception, Huseby is working to change the lives of court reporters in several significant ways: professionally, personally and financially.

CEO Scott Huseby developed the Instant Pay for Reporters program for instantly paying court reporters, videographers and trial technicians from his experience being both a court reporter and firm owner.

“Instant pay for court reporters further strengthens our position as the No. 1 landing spot for any court reporter who wants to work with a company that puts reporters as its No. 1 customer,” Huseby said.

Instant pay program makes this court reporter feel appreciated, part of the team

Huseby Inc. initiated its Instant Pay for Reporters program last year, and Audra Smith of Winston-Salem, North Carolina has been one of the beneficiaries.

“Oh my goodness,” Smith said earlier this week after being told by Huseby she would be paid instantly once she turned in her first Huseby job.

“This is incredible.” she continued. “Most times when I do real-time, they request me back for the job. So, I will most definitely be doing that with you all!”

Smith’s experience illustrates how Huseby is working to change the lives of court reporters in several significant ways: professionally, personally and financially. By paying them instantly upon turning their work, Huseby is striving to instill a spirit of teamwork among reporters and to make reporters feel they're part of a team.

Smith said of all the firms she has worked with and been affiliated with in the last 10 years of her reporting career, she finds “Huseby's communication and staff support availability to be exceptional”

She says she also appreciates Huseby’s scheduling manager telling her, “When we offer you a job, we’ll wait to hear from you before we offer it to another reporter."

Instant pay has “made my day and made me feel appreciated,” Smith said. “I love feeling a part of a team. And when I feel appreciated, I feel on purpose in life and career. The sky's the limit!”

In midst of budget compromise, good news for North Carolina court reporters

In North Carolina’s quickly passed, two and a half-months-late budget, there’s some good news for court reporters.

North Carolina’s governor plans to sign the compromise state budget that had gotten lots of media attention for how it impacts education funding, transportation funding, historic tax credits and pay for prison guards.

One issue that hasn’t gotten much attention is funding for court reporters. Last year, court reporter pay had been cut from $2.50 per page to $1.25. This budget when signed will increase that amount to $2 per page.

That caused some reporters to leave North Carolina for other states and forced Forsyth County to shut down half of its district courtrooms, according to one report. Some prosecutors considered more plea deals as a result.

State senator Stan Bingham, a Republican from Davidson and Montgomery counties, said, “As we have on many things, we’ll try something and realize it was a mistake or we need to compromise or make changes,” said Bingham. “And that’s in effect what’s happening.” (WFMY)
