Goodbye Lori, my dear, dear friend. Words cannot express. This woman was love personified.

"Lori has impacted my career since the first day I met her," said Kate Sornson, project manager for the Global Career Development Initiative. "Through her kindness of welcoming and remembering a young-newbie at ISPA (I was 22 when we met), I was shown the generosity I needed to truly fall in love with our industry. It is because of people like Lori, who engage and encourage the voices of those around them, that I pursued a career in spa and wellness. Recently, due to Lori's unwavering belief in my abilities, I was able to show up for her when she had to step back from the Global Career Development Initiative due to her cancer. She trusted me with her vision, allowing me to be her voice and take her place as moderator at the 2015 Global Wellness Summit. The past year has been a year of growth for me in defining what my spa and wellness career will look like. Lori was integral to my journey, encouraging me, challenging me, and believing in me. My hope is that I can continue her vision for bringing more people into our industry with love, understanding, kindness, humour, and (of course) a smile!"

Hutchinson began her career at San Francisco’s Stanford Court Hotel in 1978, and in 1982, she opened Campton Place Hotel as director of human resources. She also worked for Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa before co-founding Hutchinson Consulting – which provides recruitment for hotels, resorts and spas – with her husband Bill in 1993. In addition to her role as ISPA board member, Hutchinson was the chair for the Global Wellness Institute’s Global Careership Initiative.
