Lisa Colston, RPR, FCRR, CCR - Director

Lisa Colston began her court reporting career in the late ‘80s, when paper and ink were
associated with the stenograph machine. Over and over she heard, “You will be replaced by
technology.” The technology is what piqued her interest the most, so she embraced it rather
than feared it. After working for decades as a court reporter, today Lisa has transitioned her
court reporting skills to the captioning side of our industry and operates GameDay Captions.
Her team of captioners provide captioning for webinars, lectures, corporate meetings, and
sports events. Although staying on top of technology is a challenge, she continues to embrace
the challenge and is warmed by the intrinsic reward this service provides. A highlight of her
career was captioning the All-Star Game series at Great American Ballpark, home of the
Cincinnati Reds, with fellow KyCRA members Dena Legg and Tammy Duvall-McClain.

When asked if she would serve on the KyCRA Board, it was without hesitation she said Yes!
With the evolving industry we practice in, having diversity among the services our members
provide at the Board level will provide benefit to the entire membership and allow for KyCRA to
stay at the forefront of the industry as a whole.
