President / CEO
Prior to the Chamber Lori was a past Advisor and Trainer to the Business Community, Military, Professional Baseball, Retail and Staffing Industries since 2001. Lori worked with the Local Entrepreneur to Fortune 500 Companies from National to International.
I believe that "the only constant in life is change ... every business will experience periods of growth until it reaches a plateau. At every plateau, decisions for change must be made to inspire growth once more. If a business "stays the same" and the decision for change is not made, a business declines".
Lori started her career in outside sales in 1982 selling copying equipment. In 1985 she transitioned into the Staffing Industry as an Account Manager. She quickly moved to Branch Management, Area (multi-office) Management to Regional. Her training career started with Snelling Personnel as Area Vice President/Franchise Support. Supporting 43 offices in 5 states. As an Agent of Change - Training, Public Speaking, Published Writer, Business Consultant
Lori is very strategic in thought with the ability to see various possibilities turning thoughts and ideas into action. Ability to quickly assess the unique qualities in people and how they can work more productively together.
Incredibly forward thinking with a constant focus on changes ahead and how to adapt to those changes.
