Katherine Kaplanek, RPR – Arroyo Grande, California
Something about me:
I have been a CSR since 1975 working mainly freelance, with several years' experience as a pro tem official reporter. I do write in realtime.
I love the reporting profession and have seen its progression over the years from carbon paper (!) to the LightSpeed digital writer. I started using a "laptop" when they first came out in the late '80s, weighing about 45 pounds, about the size of a portable typewriter. All the more for a reporter to schlep around.
