Lori J. Kayser
Lori J. KayserLeadership Coach, C.O.O
Lori graduated from Georgetown University’s Leadership Coaching Program in 2013. In her 15 years as a Financial Advisor for VALIC serving private, non-profit, and individuals and her experience with the non-profit she co-founded, Team Tony Cancer Foundation, she noticed how powerful the coaching methodology is in supporting those she serves to attaining “IT” – generative and sustainable high performance. Through her journey with multiple cancer diagnoses, the paralysis of her left leg, and managing an “incurable” form of cancer, she learned how leveraging polarities could lead to a life of thriving under uncertainty. In 2014, she joined her brother Cliff Kayser, Founder of Xperience LLC, to use her life and experiences to support others to create more “IT” in their lives. She received a Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology in 2017. She combines her knowledge, wisdom, experience and skills to help her clients create meaning and purpose in their lives.
