About Karen:


Karen Vest, CCR, RPR, CRR
Location: Springfield, MO
Years Reporting: 29

"I’ve been a court reporter since 1991, holding my first job with Freeman & Associates (owned by Jeannette Freeman—one of the last great pen writers!) in Springfield, Missouri.  As of next year, I will have been a member of this amazing profession for 30 YEARS!!

I love being a court reporter because of the way it empowers me while not necessarily having to be in the spotlight.  Even when surrounded by lawyers, doctors, scientists, geniuses from every field—I love being the ONE individual in the entire room who can do this job! 

I am so glad I made the decision to go to court reporting school so many years ago.  It has been a rewarding, challenging career with the opportunity to really perfect my skills and pursue excellence in the litigation support field!"
