Lori is a dedicated and committed employee. She genuinely looks forward to heading to the office every morning. Growing up on a dairy farm, her parents modeled the value of integrity and a strong work ethic and Lori brings that to work every day. She responds to clients’ requests as soon as possible and strives to deliver a positive client experience. It brings her joy to go above and beyond for a client ‒ sometimes surprising them with a song-filled birthday greeting.
Originally from Halma, Minnesota, Lori graduated from Mayville State University in December of 1992 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. She jumped at the chance to move to the beautiful city of Duluth a month later. Her first job opportunity as a wire operator in the Shearson Lehman Brothers office started her 26-year career in the finance industry. She was working at UBS, formerly PaineWebber, before joining Raymond James in 2011.
Lori enjoys living next to Hartley Park, with her husband, Wade Rasch, and their four children, Ella, Erin, Laura and Connor. She enjoys running, mountain biking, volleyball and volunteering in the children’s activities. She is active at Kenwood Lutheran Church, where she has taught Sunday school, directs musicals for the youth, and sings in the Praise and Worship Band.
