"If your work doesn't excite you, don't expect it to excite anyone else."

Hi there, I'm Lori, and I'm one of the lucky ones who gets to create and innovate for a living!

Over the years, I've worked in a wide variety of industries in B2B and B2C, as well as nonprofit sectors. I love working across disciplines to turn a vision into a tangible, actionable plan. I understand the need to balance creative with business goals, while sticking to a budget. As a leader, I believe deeply in building strong relationships with those I work with — clients and coworkers alike.

When I'm not working, I'm binge reading whatever novel I can get my hands on, enjoying my beloved Colorado, cuddling with my two 85 lb. dogs, admiring my lovely husband, and of course, finding reasons to avoid housework.
