I've been working with Lori for several years and I can't sing her praises loud enough. My standard for excellence is high quality work and a positive, easy to work with attitude and she exceeds both. She is creative and strategic to boot. The projects I've enlisted her for include recipe development, photography, videography, writing, editing, influencer relations, social media management and more. I have never been disappointed!
