Lori Strum

Media/Production Accountant

I graduated from AIB with an Associate’s degree in Computer Programming & Accounting and then went to Rockford University where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. After school I decided to stay in Illinois and took a job at DEKALB Ag. During my eight-year career I handled the DSM, RSM, and ASM co-op programs and worked with a variety of people in different marketing roles.

After moving back to Iowa, I entered the world of media and haven’t looked back since. In the past 20 years I’ve worked for several different advertising agencies in the Des Moines area and worked as a senior media planner/buyer and media director.

When I’m not at work you can find me spending time with my family or at one of my three other jobs.

  • I work part-time at Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse and the Tea Room.
  • I’m a licensed realtor in the state of Iowa.
  • I’m a mom of three (Zakari, Adryan, Rhiannon) and a grandmother to two (Alaina and Urijah).

It’s safe to say I like to stay busy!
