natalie-kijurna   Hello!

I hope you're having a wonderful week!  It's been BEAUTIFUL in Hobart over the last few days, and we're really feeling the summer weather. 

In case you might not have noticed, the Job Drawer took a break last week.  I was busy preparing for College of Court Reporting's visit from our accrediting body the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) which took place on Wednesday and Thursday of this week.  We have not had an accreditation visit for seven years and there was much to prepare.  In fact, the preparation for this visit started well over a year ago.

But, in spite of all the anxiety, angst, nail-biting, sweating, screaming, crying (and that was just from me the first morning...lol just kidding!!) I'm thrilled to report that the visit went very well!!  In fact, the accreditation team even went so far as to throw around phrases like "premiere court reporting school" and "if this were my school, I'd be elated" when speaking to us about CCR.  So, YAY, TEAM CCR!!! 

I would also like to personally thank each and every one of you for being a CCR alumnus.  It means a lot to us that you chose our school and then put your nose to the grindstone and finished out your course of study, no matter the roadblocks that might have been thrown in your way.  I sincerely don't want you to think I'm just blowing smoke when I say that we wouldn't be who we are without our students and our alumni who challenge us, push us, and dare us to be the very best.  It's because of you that we keep moving forward to improve our existing programs and build new programs such as ev360 Ultimate.  I know I speak for all the administrators and staff when I thank you for being on the front lines every day showing the world what CCR alumni are capable of in the profession of court reporting.  And, for those of you who might not be exactly where you want to be yet, we applaud you for your tenaciousness and determination in working towards your goals.  I want to specifically thank the alumni that might have spoken directly to an ACICS team member over the last two days.  Your participation in this process was appreciated more than you know.

Kelly Olhausen, a CCR graduate, was featured in an Arizona newspaper last month. The article is about how standing up at work can greatly improve your health. Kelly talks about her standing desk, why she needed it, and how it has improved her life.


We spend a lot of money every year trying to figure out how to get healthier. But the answer could be very simple, even when you're on the job. Just stand up.

In the fact that she is blind, Kayde Rieken is unlike most other students. Even though she has to do things differently than other students, she is still progressing and deals with the same challenges that other court reporting students face. Conducting an interview with her was a pleasure, and her answers were very informative as to how she progresses in the program.

In 1984, Kay Moody made a life-changing decision.  That was the year she decided to take matters into her own hands and start College of Court Reporting (CCR) - no small task considering she had four children and money was tight.  But, undaunted, she unselfishly brought three students into her living room and started teaching.  Fast forward 30 years.  Today, College of Court Reporting’s President is her son, Jeff Moody, and Kay is in retirement.  Okay, even Kay will tell you that’s not entirely true.  Her expertise is too important not to have her involved in the day-to-day operations, but she’s supposed to be in retirement.  Maybe.  Someday.

To understand where I’m coming from, you need to understand a little bit about where I’ve been.  I’ve been in the law business for almost 16 years.  I started law school in 1998 and, after graduation, I worked for two Chicago law firms for about five years.  I then decided I needed a change, so I ended up moving into academia.

1. Where do you currently reside (city,state)?
I currently reside in West Chester, PA.It’s about 25 miles outside of Philadelphia.


2. Why did you decide to come to court reporting school?
I received my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and began working full-time at the courthouse. I was occasionally clerking hearings and loved being in the courtroom. I wanted to work in court on a regular basis, but I never wanted to be a lawyer. One day I was sitting next to the court reporter and thought, “Hey, I can do that.” The rest is history.
