"Every great dream begins with a dreamer." - Harriet Tubman
My name is Amanda K. Fisher. I'm a court reporter and owner of Stumptown Steno. I became a licensed reporter in 2010 after graduating from Green River Community College, completing my internship hours, and then passing the Washington State certification. When I enrolled in the program, I knew that my ultimate goal was to own and operate my own business, and I realized that dream in 2013 when I founded Stumptown Steno. I love my job. I value the relationships I've formed with my clients, and I appreciate that I get to be part of our incredibly important judicial process.
I've found interesting ways to use my very unique skill set. One of my favorite things to do is what I call Life History Documentation. I sit with people and take their life stories to preserve them for future generations. I've had the honor of sitting down with some of the elders in my own family to protect our history. I am particularly passionate about recording the histories of war veterans.
I grew up in a small town in Southeast Washington, but I've been a part of the Portland community now for nearly 20 years. I am a mother to two wonderful children. In my spare time I love to paint with acrylics, sing karaoke, and cook. I've recently been bitten by the travel bug, and I look forward to next international adventure. My friends and family are extremely important to me, and I spend as much time with them as I can. When I'm not working, you might find me playing family board games, road-tripping to the beach, or hosting a party.
I am proud of my business and humbled by its success. I look forward to continuing to serve the legal community with professionalism and passion.
