Lori and her family moved to Flagstaff in 1984. While still completing her high school education, Lori started her career in real estate with Coldwell Banker. After graduation, she enlisted in the Air National Guard for 6 years, married her husband, who was also in the Air Force, moved to Kirkland AFB in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
In 1994 Lori returned to Flagstaff and her real estate career as the office manager for Forest Highlands Realty. In 1997 DMB Associates acquired Forest Highlands Real Estate and as Lori likes to say, she “came with the furniture”. As DMB Associates expanded their development presence, Lori was offered a new and challenging opportunity opening the sales and information center for Silverleaf. It was an exciting position for Lori and she and her family moved to the Valley. Silverleaf became the jewel in the crown of north Scottsdale and Lori and the sales team closed over $1 billion in sales in 2005.
After 10 years with DMB Associates, Lori decided to follow her passion for fitness and help her husband run their outdoor fitness program for women, Adventure Boot Camp. They opened their first location in 2005 at Anthem and a second one in Flagstaff in 2008. The business was a success and Lori had found a new calling. However, after 5 years running a family business, Lori still missed her Real Estate roots. In April 2013 a new opportunity presented itself; a chance to return to Forest Highlands where she had started. Lori accepted the position of Operations Manager at DMB Realty Network and is enjoying the new challenges and opportunities of the ever changing real estate world.
