About Lori Mangum

Lori LOVES Louisville, so it's a natural fit for her to serve as the Content Coordinator of YesLouisville.com! When she's not interviewing awesome Louisvillians on our #502LeaderSeries Podcast or making sure our content is on point, she's sipping bourbon on her front porch swing. She also loves to write & would like to point out that the English degree is finally paying off.
