Lori & Annie

Hello! I’m Lori and I’m so glad you’re here. 

Nothing enlivens my heart more than to help someone. I believe that everyone has unique and equally significant gifts, talents, skills and abilities, that attitude is everything, life is meant to be enjoyed and we should all strive to leave the world a better place than we found it. I have experience as an athlete, cubicle occupant, mother, personal trainer, woman and flawed human.  Above and beyond all else, I am a follower of God. I work and pray every day that he guide me make the difference that he created me to make during my Earthly time. I am a get-er-done, type A striver. My two precious girls challenge me every day to focus on the now vs the unchecked to-dos.  A little more about me and my credentials:

I have an undergraduate degree in Management and MBA from Purdue University.

I am a life-long athlete, and had the privilege of competing in Division 1 varsity soccer while studying at Purdue. I have served on Purdue’s Athletic Advisory Council. 

I am a ketogenic diet guru and macro-nutrient wizard, due to one of my daughter’s two rare genetic disorders: Glucose Transporter Type 1 Deficiency Syndrome.

Exercise and nutrition are central in my life. I am a personal trainer, certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).

I hold several nutrition certifications from the National Personal Training Institute (NPTI) and the American Council of Exercise (ACE). 

I have worked for General Motors, Dell, Inc. and most significantly, Procter & Gamble where I worked to build brands including Zest and Gillette. I also enabled the total insights and analytics function (1300 global professionals) be more efficient, effective and satisfied in their jobs.

I have an incredible soft spot for young children as well as animals. I spent years volunteering in an animal shelter, with the Jr. Achievement organization and United Way, among others. I currently volunteer with SoBig, an organization lifting up expectant women & children in need. 

Perhaps my greatest credentials are a list of flub-ups, which I’ve tried to learn from. I’m divorced. I struggle with pride and selfishness. I’m impatient. I have work to do in not placing importance on things that aren’t important. But, my kids deserve my best. So, I will continue working every day to grow personally while directing them toward a better path. I truly hope the letters I share here help us both grow together as moms and beyond.

Xo, Lori
