Natalie Domanico, RPR, CCR, CLR -  immediate Past President




I am originally from an old steel mill, Italian town called Steubenville, Ohio.

I attended court reporting school at Educational Services Center, which later became the Kentucky Career Institute in Florence, Kentucky.  Upon graduation, I interned at the Hamilton County Circuit Courthouse, Cincinnati, Ohio and was exposed to arraignments and civil court trials. After my graduation internship was complete, I became a reporter for An/Dor Reporting Services, Inc. in November of 1989, and remained there for 10 years. During that time I, then, went on to pass the NCRA RPR skills and written knowledge test and presently still hold that certification. I also became certified in Live Note for realtime translation.

I have enjoyed this profession of being a full-time, freelance court reporter for the past 25 years; starting my own business in December 1999 to the present.

Associations of which I belong to are NCRA and KyCRA. I am a Notary Public State at Large and hold a Notary Public Special-Commission.  Committees which I have served on have been the Anti-Contracting Committee.  After serving on that committee, I then became a board director, Vice President for two years and President for two years.

My hobbies include: Cooking, traveling, playing tennis, riding my bike and becoming a certified scuba diver.
