About Lora

I'm a 2x entrepreneur looking for my next venture. I have 15 years experience in accounting and finance, have been Controller 2x and most recently hold the COO position for a 20 year old electronic data hosting, archiving, encryption and compliance company expected to sell within the next year. I increase profits, decrease expenses and increase shareholder equity. I see dollars and cents everywhere and know how to utilize current assets to achieve the best results. I am best known for outstanding Money Management, Leadership, Team Building, Cost savings, Process Improvement and Automation. I'm the glue that holds things together when everything gets difficult. I would like to stroke my technical/analytical/problem solving side more in the future. Who knew an accountant could be creative AND techy! I enjoy daily challenges and hate being bored. I am always looking for ways to improve upon what is.
I would like to find a dynamic group to join and help guide towards our next big payout.
I am looking for the brave, the trail blazers, the can-do'ers to accomplish something big together. I have a few ideas of my own, but am open to the next big idea. Let's get there together, I KNOW we can do it!
