MARGARETTA TWP.

Karrie Fleetwood is a vital link between patients and physicians. At a small corner desk adorned with framed family portraits, she completes a series of charts detailing patient histories, recommendations and emergency room data — all without leaving her living room.

Fleetwood, 45, is a part-time medical transcriptionist for Firelands Regional Medical Center. Though she’s exempt from business dress codes at her home in Castalia, you won’t find her still in pajamas at noon.
