Lori Lisitza PMgr, CMgr MCIM Executive Officer

A self-declared life-long learner, being surrounded by students on an academic journey was a natural fit for Lori. Fast forward from coding in MS-DOS, Lori found that she has a knack for project management and paired that with media brokerage and indie music album design. Lori went on to study business administration at Memorial University and USask with a particular interest in management earning chartered management credentials in both Canada and the UK. Lori wears ‘several hats’ within the College of Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies and as a member of the Dean’s leadership team, she brings leadership and development on all aspects of CGPS communications, leads a variety of strategic projects, and has oversight of key aspects of day-to-day operations. When not at work you will find Lori at the barn, with a pair of skates in the trunk and a yellow ribbon on the bumper in support of Canada's troops.
