Meet Court Reporter Rosalie Kramm, CSR, RPR, CRR
At Veritext, we firmly believe that a court reporting firm is only as strong as its reporters. That’s why we only partner and work with the best of the best, and reporter and principal Rosalie Kramm is a perfect example. Like all of Veritext’s expert court reporters, Rosalie not only provides top-notch customer service, but also plays a vital role in giving back to the community.
As a leader in the court reporting industry, Veritext understands the importance of supporting its reporters in order to deliver the highest level of service possible. Reporters like Rosalie are key to accomplishing that mission.
Rosalie’s court reporting career started over 30 years ago, as both a stenographic court reporter and the owner/operator of Kramm Court Reporting in San Diego, California, before joining the team at Veritext in 2018.
Rosalie is a Certified Court Reporter in California and holds a national Certified Realtime Reporter license. She’s also certified as a LiveNote trainer and a frequent presenter at advanced workshops, training other reporters on the use of interactive real-time reporting software, such as Realtime with LiveNote, Bridge and Summation.
From 2013 through 2018, Rosalie sat on the Court Reporters Board of California, part of the state’s Department of Consumer Affairs. She has also served as president of the Deposition Reporters Association of California, the General Reporters Association of San Diego and the Society for the Technological Advancement of Reporting.
Rosalie Kramm is no stranger to giving back and advocating in the legal community and viewed as a thought leader among her peers. In addition to serving on the board of the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program, Rosalie works as a court reporter advocate at Veritext, along with her other court reporting duties.
On many weekends throughout the year, Rosalie opens up her home to court reporters in San Diego for a hands-on instructional session on how to set up their machines, work with the most up-to-date steno technology and give general advice and support to those that need it.
Rosalie also shares her knowledge of the industry by writing blog posts and articles outlining tips and tricks for the court reporting industry. Her blog posts are regularly picked up by court reporting publications/associations, and she recently wrote an article for Law Technology Today on Making the Most of Real Time Transcription.
Additionally, Rosalie’s work as a court reporter advocate sees her regularly visiting high schools and junior colleges in order to introduce students to the world of court reporting. Many students lack any kind of understanding of what stenographers do, so Rosalie is able to impart invaluable knowledge about the different career opportunities available, including work in the court systems, freelance work with deposition reporting and captioning for television, YouTube and live events.
At the end of each of Rosalie’s presentations, she always offered students a list of possible websites to visit for more information, but wished there was a centralized place where students could go to get answers on a national level. She took that desire back to Veritext, and the Veritext Student Resource Center was born.
The Student Resource Center is a one-stop shop for all things court reporting, with the goal of educating students and other individuals interested in learning more about a career in the court reporting and stenography industry. The website is vetted by experts in the court reporting community across the U.S. and Canada, offering the most up-to-date and experience-based information on the court reporting industry and its many potential, rewarding career paths.
The Veritext Student Resource Center is just another way that Veritext is continually striving to advance and strengthen the profession of court reporting. Veritext is a recognized leader in deposition and litigation solutions with a track record of excellence. We strive to help court reporters like Rosalie Kramm achieve successful and rewarding careers. Contact us to learn more at [email protected].
