Employee Spotlight – Lori Bachel

Today’s employee spotlight introduces us to Lori Bachel.  Lori is a finance machine! Any and all orders sent in to SJF will pass through her hands at least once.  The Sales guys give Lori a lot of flak, but she’s the one making sure that all of our ducks are in a row.  Without Lori at the helm, we would be lost.
