Lori is a self-described “shy introvert” who has managed to break the stereotype that only big personalities can work in the advertising agency industry. She is noted to be very soft spoken and yet has a very dominant role in the business world making her a welcome contradiction to what is usually expected of CEO’s and more so, women entrepreneurs.
