What word or phrase best describes you?
The word or phrase that best describes me…Uninhibited.  When I was 10, I was at this church event and the older girls had to tell us what word they think describes us.  My card said “uninhibited. You are unafraid of people or things”.  I think that was the biggest compliment I have received in my life.  I have never forgotten that and I continue to live by it.  Life is too short to be miserable or hold things in!

What is your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure is…Shia LeBeouf.  I feel like it is time for me to come out with that.  I have been holding it in for years, and now that it is on the internet, it is officially official.  Also Fall Out Boy, but I don’t think that is as oddly embarrassing.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
If I won the lottery, I’d…travel the world and learn as many languages as my brain could store.  I know, I know, I could do that now if I want to, but Im kind of a workaholic and it is hard enough to get me away from my computer to go to Target, so I doubt I am going to Europe anytime soon.  Plus in my free time, I play sudoku, so no German or French for me!

What would you do if you could travel back in time?
If I could travel back in time, I’d…NOT get that VERY short version of the ‘Rachel’ haircut back in 95′.  SOOOO bad.  I think that is my only regret in life, thus far.  However, it did grow out to this really pretty Jenny McCarthy (circa Singled Out era) style.  See all things happen for a reason!

What is your hometown?
My Hometown Is….I was born in Southern California (Anaheim) and we moved around a lot throughout the Inland Empire & Orange County.  I moved to St George UT when I was 13 and that is where I spent my adolescence and graduated from High School.  So I guess I have to claim St George, since it seems to have the biggest impact on my upbringing!  Although as soon as I graduated High School I high tailed it to San Diego, where I lived for 15 years before returning to Southern Utah.

What is your hometown?
My Hometown is… West Palm Beach FL. I love living in what is considered to a lot of people as “Paradise”. I love the beaches, the humidity, the outdoor activities. I love having the ability to walk out and have endless options of things to do with the kiddos.

What is your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure is… Chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels. Yeah, you read it right, I became addicted to them when I was pregnant with my now 4 YEAR OLD.

What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about… a healthy lifestyle. A colorful diet is a colorful you. One may not put all healthy foods/drinks in your body, that is why the option for exercise is so important.Work it Out!

What are are some causes you care about?
Some causes I care about… JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) My sister was diagnosed with diabetes at 8 years old. March of Dimes, as all three of my children were premies. Advocate for children!

What do you do when you’re not at work?
When I’m not working, I’m probably… Plotting another activity to tire my little boys out. Being that they are 17 months apart, I can do obstacle courses, races, and activities to accommodate the 3. Movement is KEY. Once they are done for the day, you will find me with a very full glass of wine with the hubby.

What is your hometown?

A word that best describes you?
Determined. I’ve always been one to keep working towards something I want to achieve, despite any obstacles that may arise.

What are you passionate about?
Music and art. It is the greatest way to express yourself and I find it is what makes life beautiful. I’ve been a classically trained vocalist of 15+ years and I’ve found it to be my favorite form of art because a lot of our emotions are tied to sounds. Art is part of every aspect of our lives and is something worth embracing.

What do you do when you’re not at work?
When I’m not working, I’m probably baking or hiking. Baking is another form of art that I thoroughly enjoy. It is my own little world and I can do so many things; the sky is your limit. I get to share my hard work and art with others which is even more enjoyable. As for hiking, I am an outdoor enthusiast. Being out in nature and observing the magnificent structures gives me a better perspective of life. Sometimes we overlook the awe that is surrounding us.

When I was little I dreamed of…
Being a musician. I want to be able to be an influence through my words and aid in bringing joy through the intimate sense of sound. Many are deeply impacted by music. Since it deeply impacts our feelings, being able to involve myself in that is an indescribable elation.

Lisa Lor

Lisa Lor

Accounting Assistant for Kay Xiong

What is your hometown?
Detroit, MI but I’ve lived majority of my life in the metro Detroit area. Not sure why I’m still here, I really hate our winters and would be completely fine if I never saw snow again in my life! If I could live anywhere else it would defiantly be California or Seattle. Hoping that happens one day.

What word or phrase best describes you?
Adventurous, I really enjoy trying new things, whether it’s food or activities. I would even say spontaneous would describe me as well. I’m always up for anything and I’m the type of person to try to fit a million things in a day. I always try to utilize my time especially when it comes to new places. But if you ever ask me to do anything, 99% of the time I’ll say yes.

What is your guilty pleasure?
7-Eleven coke slurpees. I know they have other drinks similar to it such a coke icees but I know the difference, it has to be a slurpee from 7-eleven. And it has to be coke, I will not drink any other flavors, not even Pepsi.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
I’d invest some of the money, and travel the world with my family and close friends. I already have a list of places I want to visit, and I’m constantly added to it. And depending on how much I won, I would definitely buy a home in all the main cities I love so I could always come back to visit. And I suppose I should pay off my student loans.

What do you do when you’re not at work?
I’m probably taking a nap. I’ve always enjoyed my naps, and they can last up 2-3 hours. Is that still considered a nap? Hah. If I’m not sleeping my life away, I would probably be somewhere outside hiking. I really enjoy the hikes where the end of the trail leads you to a breathtaking view! My most favorite hike was in Vancouver, B.C. It’s so beautiful there, I recommend everyone go there once in their life. Doesn’t matter what hike you go on; I guarantee you the view at the end will be worth it!

What is your hometown?
My hometown is Richmond, TX. A short 15 miles from the big city of Houston. Small enough to hear the high school football game from my back yard on Friday nights, and big enough to still have all several Starbucks within a few miles of each other, HAHA! I absolutely love the small town feel with the big city just down the road.

What word best describe you?
A word that best describes me is ambitious. I will give anything a shot, always with a very strong desire to achieve the best results possible. If I give it my absolute best then I can have no regrets regardless of the outcome, I can’t live with the regret of not trying at all.

If I won the lottery, I’d…
If I won the lottery I would start a non-profit, or two! The freedom of not having to work just to pay my bills would allow me to work in my dream field full time, one where I focus on the purpose versus the profit. I’ve always said I would be at my happiest if I could just do volunteer work every day.

I am passionate about …
I’m passionate about volunteering in my community. While I volunteer frequently with different organizations, I do have a couple of main focuses. I am a nine year committee member and current Co-Chairman for a local scholarship program assisting high school girls gain valuable life skills while earning funds for college. I also strive to consistently dedicate time to helping a local non profit that provides lunches during weekends and school holidays to children who rely on access to school meals.

When I’m not working, I’m probably…
When I’m not working, I’m probably eating. Yes, I love food! There are very few things I won’t try, and if you ask me if I am hungry the answer is always yes.
