My relationship with CanScribe began 5 years ago when I decided to take the MT/HDS program. I anticipated this program would be easy. I mean really, how hard is it to just type what you hear?  It was not long after I started the course that I realized typing what I heard was actually more difficult than anticipated.

I had started the program when my daughter was only 4 months.  I was doing really well.  Until I wasn’t.  I felt withdrawn from the program. I was struggling and had too much pride to ask for help. I avoided contact with the  school when they would call and was on the verge of withdrawing because I had fallen so far behind that there was no hope in catching myself up. Until one day, my phone rang, and it was the school. For the first time, I answered it. The instructor on the other end of that phone call was so understanding and knew exactly what I was going through because she had been in the same position as I was at that very moment.

She reassured me that I could do this, but it was not going to be easy.  She also assured me that she and the instructional team would assist me all the way, but I had to put in the work, read the feedback, do the self-assessments, and dedicate myself completely.  Now, here I am; I graduated with honors, got my 2 years completed in the field, and was hired on with CanScribe almost a year ago.

I am proud to say that instructor who called me is still with CanScribe today. The instructional team is here, you just have to reach out or respond to them when they reach out to you. Stay focused and do the work, ask all the questions, read all of the feedback!  You can do this!
