Lori L. Rapozo, CCR, RPR, CRI
I am a proud graduate of Green River College’s Court Reporting Program. I began reporting in 1980 and officially stopped reporting, but not writing on my machine, in 1992. During those years, I was a freelance court reporter with extensive reporting in the federal court system. I’ve reported all over Washington state and also in my home state of North Dakota.
My teaching career began in the Tri-Cities, where I taught privately. I also began an evening Court Reporting program at Columbia Basin College. Here I taught for three years before moving to Yakima and then back to Western Washington to continue my court reporting career. I began teaching at Green River College in the fall of 1991.
I enjoy overseeing the court reporting interns and coordinating with the University of Washington and Seattle University law schools to report their mock depositions and mock trials. I started implementing online court reporting courses in the spring of 2002, and currently teach onsite and online courses. Presently, I am serving on NCRA's Council on Approved Student Education, local committees, and I help facilitate the NCRA exams and Washington CCR exam.
In 2001, I was honored with Green River's Distinguished Faculty award and in 2009, I received NCRA's CASE Instructor of the Year award. The students energize me and I truly enjoy the opportunity to help them achieve their goals.
When I’m not at school, I enjoy snow skiing, kayaking, and hiking with my family and friends. My hobbies include cross-stitch, cooking, baking, and holding babies.
