Innovest Employee Spotlight: Lori Foster

Each quarter, we feature one Innovest employee in our Employee Spotlight. Read below for our interview with Lori Foster, Administrative Assistant. Lori supports our consulting and operations team with scheduling meetings, assisting with performance reports and asset allocation studies, various ad hoc projects and administrative duties. Lori is also a member of Innovest’s Communications Committee.


Where is your hometown?

I was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and moved to Colorado when I was in elementary school.  I consider myself a semi-native of Colorado.

 

Tell us something unique about you.

While I have lived in Colorado most of my life, I’ve never skied or snowboarded.  I know it may be hard to believe, but it’s true! I do enjoy spending time in the mountains, though.

 

What do you like best about working at Innovest?

One of the many things I enjoy is the culture and sense of family at Innovest.  Innovest is a company that ensures our clients and the employees are valued and treated well.  

 

How do you give back to the community?

I participate in the various charitable events that Innovest supports.  One of my favorite events is The Food Bank of the Rockies.  I also donate each year to their cause.  I volunteer at events at my church throughout the year as well.

 

What are your hobbies and interests?

I enjoy cooking, gardening, outdoor activities, and spending time with family and friends.

 

Tell us about your family: 

I have two adult children, Bryan and Chrissy, and two granddaughters, Karly (4) and Maizy (9 months). Bryan is a glazier and installs glass in commercial buildings, and his wife, Amber, works in the restaurant industry. My daughter, Chrissy, is a caregiver at a retirement facility, and her husband, Jacob, is an electrician and is currently attending school to obtain his master electrician license. I enjoy spending as much time as possible with them, whether it be barbequing at my house, holiday dinners, or all of us going on outings together.

 

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

I’m not really a sweets or dessert person as an adult. However, when I was younger, I enjoyed ice cream--especially mint chip and rocky road.
