Renee Todd first found her passion for court reporting after graduating from Franklin High School in Somerset, New Jersey, when her dad brought her to Roberts Walsh Court Reporting School to possibly pursue a career in court reporting. Renee shares how she felt when she first walked into a class at Roberts Walsh inquiring about the program; “The minute I walked into Roberts Walsh, I was mesmerized, and I said, that’s what I want to do!”
She attended court reporting school from 1965 to 1967. She mastered her CSR in 1968 and her RPR in 1973. She started her career in 1967 as an official reporter working in the civil and criminal courts until 1971. She then became a freelance reporter until 1980 when she moved to Florida.
She continued working as a freelance reporter until 1985 at which time Capital Reporting Service, Inc., was born! While Renee was out taking the jobs, her husband Lou handled every aspect of the business. Together as a team they built Capital to be a successful agency with 35 court reporters servicing the tri-county for 25 years.
In 2008 as Renee started to slow down her court reporting career, she sold her agency. She now looks forward to supporting and guiding her daughters as they venture towards replicating the same great service and success that Capital had provided for 25 years.
Renee's eldest daughter, Lisa Sheib, graduated high school in 1990 and quickly decided that she wanted to be a court reporter and follow in her mother's footsteps. Lisa found herself working at Capital Reporting immediately after high school learning the ins and outs of the court reporting field. She was able to learn every aspect of running an agency by answering phones, scheduling jobs, billing, producing transcripts, and making deliveries to clients.
She attended Sheridan Vocational in 1991 and completed and graduated in 1994. She started her court reporting career at her mother's agency, Capital Reporting Service, Inc., and has been a court reporter now for over 20 years. She has experience in every aspect of the business; including all civil and criminal depositions, hearings, trials, arbitrations, statements, and adoptions. She loves running the business and being a court reporter.
Lisa has trained new reporters in proper etiquette and ethics of a court reporter and how to maintain professionalism in the workplace. She has been commended by many attorneys and fellow reporters on the quality of her work. She works exceptionally well with her peers and all attorneys in the legal community.
Renee's youngest daughter, Samantha Todd, graduated from high school in 1994 and obtained her bachelor's degree from the University of South Florida graduating with a Mass Communications degree in 1998. After working in sales in other industries for many years, she decided to join the family agency and work in the office learning the business.
She started at Capital Reporting Service, Inc., in 2001 working in the office, managing all the financial needs of the business. She technologically brought the business to the next level enabling the business to flourish even further. She learned the ins and outs of the business which included scheduling, transcript production, billing, customer relations, collections, and all other financial aspects.
In 2004, her passion for the industry guided her down the path of court reporting school where she attended and graduated from Atlantic Vocational Technical Institute in 2007 as a court reporter, following in both her mother's and sister's footsteps. She started her court reporting career at Capital Reporting Service, Inc., and has been reporting ever since.
