Kara Holland, CSR, RPR


I graduated high school from Sioux City, Iowa, and then attended AIB College of

Business in Des Moines and graduated in 2007. I had a freelance job waiting for me in

Omaha, Nebraska, at Thomas & Thomas Court Reporters. While there, I worked like a

crazy lady getting tons of experience. Other than taking a ton of depositions, some of

the highlights were doing instant transcripts for the Berkshire Hathaway annual

shareholder meeting and dabbling in the tremendously rewarding field of CART. After

that, I decided I wanted to become an official and started working for the Honorable

Steven D. Burns in Lincoln, Nebraska. I spent about a year there, and that’s when a

position opened in Sioux City working for the Honorable Mary Jane Sokolovske that

ended up bringing me back home and closer to my family.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. Even though I’m single

and don’t have children, I have a dog named Totes who keeps me busy. I also love

traveling and reading.

While in Nebraska, I served NeCRA on the Certification Committee and worked very

hard to try to establish certification standards for the Nebraska reporters. Now that I am

in Iowa, I have enjoyed my service on the Board and look forward to being Editor of In Verbis.
