Mary Ann graduated from the court reporting program at the Cittone Institue in Edison, New Jersey, too many years ago to count. She’s spent her entire career in Charleston, earning her Certified Livenote Reporter designation, as well as her Registered Professional Reporter designation from the National Court Reporters Association. After nearly 25 years as a firm owner, she thought she’d take it easy and work solo for the rest of her career. Amazingly loyal clients made that nearly impossible and she partnered with her long-time friend and business associate, Teri Sampson, to form Magnolia Reporting, LLC. When not busy with court reporting “stuff,” she and her husband of nearly 30 years, Bill, can usually be found enjoying “micro-retirement” with evening bike rides to Folly Beach.
