Having been with MAYA since 1995, Lori has developed a clear vision of MAYA’s mission, culture and core values. She is the primary point of contact for internal and external matters pertaining to the president and CEO. Her colleagues describe her as being particularly masterful at maintaining order while still keeping things moving forward amidst the high demands of a busy consultancy. When asked about her time at MAYA, Lori says that is has been “life changing, in a very positive way.”
