What you need to know about me:
Born and raised in Groves, Texas, Kensie Benoit has been working as a certified shorthand reporter for 8 years. She decided she wanted to go to court reporting school when she was in middle school after being introduced to it by her best friend’s mom. After graduating from Alvin Community College, she spent the first 2 years working as a freelancer in Beaumont, Texas, before relocating to San Antonio for an officialship. She is currently an official court reporter in the 290th District Court in San Antonio, Texas. Kensie got her start inspiring students through her once popular Facebook page Court Reporting StenoLife, which she created to bring other struggling students together. Kensie has been a speaker at previous state and national conventions. She also previously taught online classes during the week for Simply Steno and served as a proctor for the Texas state exam, served on the board of directors for the Texas Court Reporters Association and is a past president of BCCRA. She currently serves as the Vice President for BCCRA. She believes all of this was possible by hard work, networking, and being involved with state and national associations.
