Lori Anding

Lori Anding

Social Media Manager

Communication is my passion, which began as an exchange student to Brazil (1982) where I delved into learning a new language, Portuguese. I digressed into biology and clinical research, studying communication at the cell level and meandered back to language via owning a language translation agency for 10 years. Through the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Initiative I was exposed to the world of social media communication. I found my voice on Twitter during a much needed spiritual break. And now, Instagram is a new focus where I enjoy shining light on small businesses.
