What is your name?
Lori Reddy

I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends, going to movies, and my favorite thing of all time – reading a good book on a beautiful beach.

What did you do in high school?
In high school I was a news editor for the school newspaper. I wrote a weekly column my senior year called “Lori’s Line.” I was also the Community Service Chairperson my senior year. I enjoyed being involved in journalism and student government.

I started my career as a TV and Video Producer then became a Marketing Manager and Video and Webinar producer. I’m currently a Marketing Consultant for a hi-tech startup in San Mateo.

What surprised you about life after high school?
What surprised me about life after high school was how much I enjoyed paying my own bills! My first job out of college was as a production assistant for WRC-TV, the NBC station in Washington, D.C. My first year out of college I made $26,000. I loved the independence and  having the ability to pay my way.

Any words of wisdom for current Bearcats?
My advice would be to get involved. It’s a good way to figure out what you want to do (and don’t want to do) with your life. And also a great way to make friends.
