Dena Toney, Production
Dena joined Doris O. Wong Associates, Inc. in January 2017. She graduated from Rider University in 2000 where she earned a bachelor’s degree in advertising. Favoring a rather different occupation from her major, she found her niche in child care. Having the privilege of working in this field for 15 years, she will forever feel indebted to the little ones who taught her big lessons about life.
After moving to the Boston area in December 2016, she switched gears again to find suitable employment. Armed with a keen attention to detail and an aim to please, she quickly found her place here at Doris O. Wong Associates, Inc. providing verbatim transcripts to the attorneys in a timely fashion and in the format they prefer. Striking the balance between speed and perfection is not always easy, but she refuses to sacrifice quality for quantity. Taking one extra minute to look over a transcript can make a big difference.
When not working, she enjoys sharing her passion for and her strong faith in the Bible with the Mandarin Chinese community. Since Boston boasts one of the largest concentrations of Chinese-speaking people, upon graduating from a special Bible school, she was asked to move to this area to help them learn about the Bible and their Creator.
She looks forward to what the future holds and where the adventure will lead her next.
