From Wall Street to Legal-Proceeding Main Street, Geri has worked with the leaders and greatest minds in both the financial services and legal industries.
Geri spent 13 years on Wall Street working for Merrill Lynch, overseeing Operations divisions in North America and Canada in the Futures arena (aka Listed Derivatives and Options). She started with Esquire at the end of 2003, leading their DepoNet division, where she transitioned the business from Georgia to New Jersey. Geri has worked most of her career in Operations and Sales, opening and running multi-million-dollar offices in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic areas for national agencies such as Esquire, U.S. Legal Support and Merrill/DTI.
Geri was fortunate to be part of the team that launched Veritext’s Digital Reporting program in mid-2018, where her passion for bringing innovation to this industry was born. She started in April 2021 with VoiceScript, where she wears many hats and is thrilled to be with them. Geri gets to interact with digital reporters, transcribers, and industry professionals on a daily basis, and you will often hear her say, “I learn something new every day here.”
Geri is passionate about empowering individuals and being able to make a difference in people’s lives, but she lives each day knowing that, “Vision without execution is hallucination”. Her career successes did not come from always being the smartest person in the room, or the most educated, or the most technical – Geri was the one who outworked everyone else. She has spent the last four years getting people excited about this industry and the wonderful opportunities for today, as well as the possibilities for tomorrow. Geri wants to foster a sense of “community” for the Association and create an Association that people will line up, just to be part of it.
