As a leader, I embrace the idea of being open to inspiration from their growth, as it ultimately contributes to my personal development too.
Candidates’s definition of leadership
If elected, my primary goal is to foster a significant and measurable increase in membership engagement, presence, and active participation within the Association, particularly in relation to various volunteer opportunities. While I acknowledge that this aspiration may be ambitious, I am also determined to establish the association as a true community partner. I envision a welcoming environment that embraces citizens and organizations, inviting them to explore our state-of-the-art facility and learn about the high standards we have put in place to safeguard their interests. By doing so, we aim to dispel any lingering stigmas associated with working with a Realtor, promoting transparency and trust throughout the community. Together, we can build a thriving and mutually beneficial relationship, strengthening our ties within the community we proudly serve.
A few words from Lori
I'm excited to have the opportunity to advocate for you and our community!
For those of you who have never met me, here are 7 things you might find interesting. First and foremost, I'm an active member of the illustrious and dedicated divas of The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
I'm outnumbered in my house as a proud #BoyMom to Myles, an incoming freshman student athlete at Brevard College, and Grayson, a rising middle schooler who excels both in the classroom and on the soccer field. And I can’t forget our fur baby, Jelly, who we rescued 16 years ago. My hubby, Anthony and I met my Senior year of high school and have been married for 22 years.
After 15 years in Corporate America I decided to focus on my family’s legacy instead of my employers. This desire was fueled during my two-time cancer battle. When transitioning to Real Estate, I wanted a constant reminder of my big WHY so I chose GLAM as my LLC.
Don’t get me wrong. I love my heels but GLAM are the initials of my family; Grayson, Lori, Anthony, Myles and again they are why I do what I do with so much conviction because if my journey has taught me anything, it’s the value of resiliency, determination and fighting for what matters most. During that time, determined to help others experiencing hardships, I founded 2nd Chance At GLAM, a non-profit organization that empowers women affected by Cancer, Domestic Violence, and Homelessness, continuing to give back in more ways than one.
Now, if you elect me, I'll focus on 3 key initiatives:
- Increasing Professionalism & Etiquette:
We need to uphold a higher standard of professionalism within our community, inside our industry and outside with clients. By leading workshops, training sessions and accountability metrics, we can cultivate a more respectful and courteous environment for all.
- Engaging Residents Within The Community We Serve:
I believe in supporting local businesses and building strong connections between residents, consumers and entrepreneurs. Let's work together to create events that bring us all closer, fostering a sense of unity, trust and pride in our community.
- Educating Students Through Pop-Ups, Workshops, and Expos/Career Fairs:
Education is the foundation of progress. I aim to provide innovative learning opportunities for our students, inspiring them to achieve their dreams and positively impact our community's future.
So… What sets me apart from others? It's simple:
- A Fresh Perspective:
I bring a unique viewpoint to the table, one that's grounded in empathy and understanding.
- Creativity and Fun as a Visionary:
I believe in making the journey towards progress enjoyable and inclusive. Laughter and creativity can spark new ideas and unite our community.
- Results-Driven Approach:
I don't just talk the talk; I walk the walk. I'm committed to delivering tangible results that benefit each and every one of you.
On September 6, cast your vote for me and join me on my path to creating a stronger empowered Association. Feel free to follow my journey on FB, IG, LinkedIn, YouTube & TikTok @GLAM Realty
