Who We Are

Meet Lauri

Lauri’s inspiration comes from her experience as a highly decorated athlete that won multiple state championships, awards, and scholarships. She understands that it takes dedication and intentional focus to realize a goal or dream.

Her experience in various companies and positions, gave her the executive level expertise to understand where and how help was needed in business and led her to create The Project Pros. Her background in human resources, bookkeeping, customer service, and sales gave her the insight to really understand what small businesses need. Lauri’s success, is also in part, due to her 5 years of running a non-profit, that gave her other valuable perspectives that she can bring in support of her customers.

Lauri’s intention is to help build and grow small businesses. She does this by aligning herself with a team of like minded, highly talented, forward thinking, energetic, and supportive people who love what they do and our customers can sense it.

Work-life balance has always been a very important value to Lauri. She likes to spend time with her husband Todd, daughter Taylor, and their two rescue dogs, Sassy and Little Boy. Watching Taylor play sand volleyball, traveling, and doing projects around the house keeps Lauri well balanced.
