Lori says her top priority is to work every day with the Nordfab creed, “Fast, Friendly, and Reliable” ever-present in her mind. Some of her duties include assisting customers with orders and quotes, providing product technical information, order acceptance / acknowledgement, and providing support for any other issues her customers may have. She says sometimes that includes just being a good listener for a customer who wants to “mentally walk through a ducting scenario to make sure he or she is on the right track”.

Lori says she loves her job because she feels she constantly has opportunities to learn, improving her knowledge and skills so she can provide excellent customer service, and because she interacts with a diverse group of people in our sales offices, our manufacturing plant, and her territory.

She and her husband of less than two years have six children, four sons and two daughters, varying in age from 8 to 22, as well as two granddaughters, one a toddler and the other an infant. As she says, “there is NEVER a dull moment in their household!”Lori_KK_Kyndal

Lori and her family are active in their church, participating in the choral program and assisting with ministries such as the Food Pantry and Clothing Closet and the Homeless Ministry.Lori_at_coat_ministry As taking care of her family is a huge responsibility and her job can be challenging, Lori says it is her faith that keeps her strong and positive through the ups and downs of life. She also appreciates the “support of her bosses, coworkers, husband, and church family”.
Because of her willingness to assist others, one of the things Lori appreciates about Nordfab is participation in community activities such as Toys for Tots and Relay For Life.Lori_relay_for_life_lunch

Like Vernon, Lori also appreciates Nordfab’s sales meetings and the opportunity to participate in a creative team-building project with co-workers. It was at one of these sales meetings that we learned that Lori has a hidden talent. She wrote a lovely and funny children’s book, a fairy tale about Nordfab Ducting!

Lori is quick to praise her coworkers and says, “At Nordfab, we all make an excellent team to ensure our customers have the best experience. It is a privilege and honor to call Nordfab my work home!”

Lori’s easy smile and helpful manner make working with her a pleasure. We know that we are the ones who are privileged to work with her every day.
