Personal Journey #4: Interview with Lori

Hi everyone! Each week I compose a mini-blog highlighting one of the Witmer team members and this week I wanted to showcase one of the key members, Lori Gordon. I asked her a few questions revolving around her role in the Witmer Team and here’s what she had to say!

Q: What drew you to Witmer Group initially?
A: I was looking for a place I could contribute to and help the owner succeed. Witmer Group has many areas to get involved with and their focus on client success gives purpose to the work involved.

Q: What jobs do you perform for Witmer Group?
A: I handle a great assortment of tasks – website updates, daily team task management, client support, content support, lots of project juggling.

Q: What do your day-to-day operations look like?
A: Begin with Management Team chat each morning, check emails, and then move to Trello – checking assignments, moving projects to the next step or send to client for approval. Then I handle my assignments (usually website updates), check to see if anyone else needs assistance. Client chats are inserted throughout the day.

Q: What is your role in Witmer Group?
A: I’m the Operations Director.

Q: What does your life look like outside of Witmer Group?
A: My husband and I live in the country, and have a small farm. We are kept busy with that, our 2 pitbull puppies, our Grandkids who visit often, and church activities.

Q: Tell us about you individually. What are some of your interests and hobbies?
A: When I do have time for myself I enjoy curling up in the chair with a good sci-fi/fantasy book. I know, boring! 🙂

Q: Where are you located now?
A: We live right outside of Columbus, Georgia.

Q: How has the Witmer group allowed you to grow as a professional?
A: Over the past 8 years with Witmer Group I’ve gotten a lot more confident in who I am, and what I have to offer as part of the team and individually. And with marketing techniques constantly changing, I’ve had the opportunity to learn many new skills.

Q: What is your favorite part about working for Witmer Group?
A: Interacting with the Management Team, but I absolutely love my job overall!
