As part of #CRCW2021, ICRA is proud to announce the launch of the ICRA Star of the Month social media campaign! Each month we will highlight one star of our profession on Facebook.

This month’s star just goes to show that court reporting is NOT only for females! It’s a wonderful career for men as well. We are so excited to have Tanner as a colleague!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
ICRA Star of the Month — February 2021
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Name: Tanner Kockler​

Certifications: CSR, RPR

Current employment: District 2A, Judge James M. Drew

How did you first become interested in court reporting?

I really don’t have an answer for this question. The first time I had ever seen a steno machine was when I bought one and opened it up in class on the first day.

What court reporting program did you complete? DMACC

If you experienced any obstacles, what were they and how did you overcome them?

I took the scenic route through court reporting school. It took a victory lap…..and then another one, but I’m not sure if anyone knows that or cares for that matter. You just have to keep plugging along and believing that you can do it.

What do you love about what you do? ​

I love being in trial on my machine. I really like the routine of an official court reporter. Court staff is always so helpful, and they treat the court reporters so good. It is a great feeling to be appreciated in what you do.

This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I am not a huge fan of doing transcripts.

What interests or hobbies do you have outside of court reporting?

I play competitive slow pitch softball.

Do you have any advice to share with young reporters or anyone considering court reporting as a career?

I just looked, and there are so many great jobs open for you to take! As a young reporter, do not hesitate to reach out to other reporters for anything. I have never met a court reporter that wasn’t more than willing to help.

"Long before Twitter called me the 'hashtag,' I was technically known as this."

The answer we were looking for was octothorp! However, after consulting our good friends Google and Merriam-Webster, we have also decided to accept "the pound sign" as a correct answer. 😆

Congratulations to today's winner, Karrie Truitt!

ICRA is thankful for and appreciates all the Veterans who have served our country. Traditionally ICRA hosts a Veterans History Project event on or around Veterans Day to give back and celebrate our Vets. We hope to continue that tradition again in the future.

THANK YOU, Vets! And thank you to all our past VHP volunteers.
