Secretary-Treasurer: Beverly Benjamin, CSR, RPR
After graduating from Humphrey’s College in 1995, I began my freelance court reporting career on Valentine’s Day 1996. After a short stint in California and Utah, I moved to Idaho and have now been at this gig for over 22 years. I love the daily challenges and the flexibility and can’t imagine doing anything else. When I am not working, I spend time with my husband of 16 years, Larry, traveling, camping (glamping), waterskiing, UTV’ing, snowskiing, bicycling, and golfing. We also enjoy doing things with our seven grandchildren and four kids. They keep us young at heart! I also enjoy entertaining, cooking, barbecuing, gardening, reading, yoga. Most of all, I have been thankful for this career to have allowed me to have such an amazing life!!
