Small Business Support Specialist

In addition to her role as Small Business Support Specialist, Lori is also a longtime small business owner herself. She owns the Dough Source with her husband Ted, where they manufacture aromatherapy dough: think Play-Doh for adults that helps with relaxation or focus depending on the delicious, custom scent being used.  

Here at Colorado Lending Source, Lori meets with potential borrowers to ensure they are in the right stage of business to apply for either a Colorado Main Street or Community Advantage loan. She's their first point of contact in the process, and fortunately, Lori brings her experience as a small business owner along with her insatiable curiosity, huge heart, and adventurous spirit to every interaction and task that she's involved in.  She's been invaluable in helping us fulfill our mission and is always striving to build positive, care-filled, long-term relationships.
