Lori believes that within the heart of everyone lives a creative genius, and that each of us yearns to connect authentically with one another so we can make a positive difference in the world.
Lori is seasoned in the needs of a full range of decision makers, and works extensively with C-suite executives in many industries. She coaches organizations from multi-national corporations, such as Ferro Chemical and a Fortune 500 "Class One" rail transportation company, to entrepreneurial ventures and individuals in non-profits, manufacturing, financial services, management consulting, commercial real estate and the arts.
Lori is a certified somatic coach, recognized by the Strozzi Institute, and a certified Peak Potentials trainer. Additional certifications include Ken Blanchard’s Situational Leadership, Gallup Strengths-Finder, and EQi-2 (an Emotional Intelligence assessment and 360 feedback model).
Lori co-founded a professional modern dance company, in which she also served as Artistic Director, choreographer, and a highly acclaimed dancer. She was a professional dancer with her company until the age of forty-three, when she emerged from that stage of her career as a leader in the arts community. Lori now brings the wisdom gleaned from years of non-profit leadership and artistic directorship to the halls of business.
Lori is interested in creating the next level of people-centered leadership, which she first learned while observing her father, a successful marketing executive who built his business on the power of relationships.
