Position Title
Project Manager

  • Marketing Communications

Lori is the department’s go-to for all things project related. She is the quintessential I-dotter and T-crosser (in a good way). That’s why Lori has been tasked with organizing workload, establishing a process and promoting the latest integrated marketing campaign.

You’ll find Lori at various events representing the department, dashing to meetings, updating projects and hounding team members to complete deadlines.

Prior to joining Strategic Communications, Lori worked for an Omnicom Group Advertising Agency for 16 years. She began her agency tenure as an account coordinator and advanced her way to director of client services/branch manager for the Sacramento office. Her client list included AAA Northern California, Nevada and Utah; T-Mobile; Sutter Health; Foster Farms; and Hewlett-Packard.

Lori earned a double major in rhetoric and communications, and American studies from UC Davis in 1995. She is a Davis native…not to mention one of those pathetic souls who never strayed far from home. She dreams of one day retiring with her husband and splitting her time between their home in California and their tiny shack in Maui.

At the weekend I love

Spending time with family.

Random fact about me

I come from a family of Aggies with eight family members who are either alumni, students or staff members.

Guilty pleasure

’80s movies (“I want my two dollars!”; “Who you gonna call?”; “I’ve got my headgear on!”).

Thing that really baffles me

Too much talking and not enough doing. I am always open for discussion but too much talking can be painful. At the end of the day, I think more people need to make a decision, move on and complete the task.
