Victoria Rock is an entrepreneur, leader, speaker, consultant, philanthropist, and tireless advocate for business owners. From her humble beginnings as a legal secretary, she quickly established a reputation as a reliable and highly skilled court reporter before launching, growing, and selling her firm as a national leader in the court reporting industry.
An entrepreneur at heart, Victoria has always stayed ahead of the curve in the court reporting arena. Always the trendsetter, she is advancing new technologies, leveraging the power of videography.
While embracing new challenges in the court reporting arena, Victoria finds purpose in volunteer work and community involvement. Through her ties to the pro bono legal world, and her work with CDEL and the Family Defense Center, she donates court reporting services and provides educational outlets and advocacy for families impacted by abuse or negligence. She supports small businesses by lending her videography skills at city business expos to teach owners the art of the “pitch” and help them tell their stories. A firm believer in giving back, she is also a mentor to young leaders and a top connector for individuals and organizations who strive for positive change in the world.

A musician since the age of eight years, he also teaches private voice and piano students, is a ten-year member (and past administrator) of Chicago's "Too Hot to Handel" choir and directed musical theatre orchestras, church musicians and men’s a cappella choruses for more than a decade.
