Melissa Frament at her home computer. Melissa Frament at her home computer.
With the desire to find a marketable skill, Melissa Frament enrolled in a medical transcription course offered through Hudson Valley's Workforce Development Institute in 2004.

Two years later, she has a burgeoning home-based income and the flexibility to work the hours she chooses.

Medical transcription work takes a detail-oriented person and spelling and proof-reading skills are important as well. Frament is especially appreciative to Bonnie Krasher, who teaches the transcription courses offered at Hudson Valley.
