BSc PEng – University of Alberta
At a young age, Lori graduated from the University of Alberta with a professional engineering degree. She worked for a few years before switching her focus to her home life and raising her two young daughters. However, Lori’s entrepreneurial nature kicked in once more when she discovered a unique line of children’s shoes in Europe that her girls, friends, and family adored. She was determined to bring the brand to Canada, and she did, starting a manufacturing facility in Calgary, Alberta and becoming the company’s CEO. She launched the branch into mall locations across Alberta and successfully established distributors in North America. Eventually the company was sold and Lori transitioned into a college teaching role at today’s Mount Royal University, which at the time, was Mount Royal College.
After three years of math instruction, Lori moved with her husband to Houston, Texas. It was then, in 2005, that Lori first became licensed as a Mortgage Agent in the State of Texas and launched her career in the mortgage industry. After moving back to Canada in 2006, Lori worked for a mortgage broker based in Calgary until 2011.
Lori Donovan joined Source Mortgage Centre in October 2011, and she purchased the company in June 2012, becoming the broker and owner together with her husband. She prides herself in providing a very focused personal service for her growing client list. Over the past 6 years, she has distinguished herself through developing good business relationships with the lender community and has the reputation of matching the client to the most appropriate lender.
Her client referral list is strong and growing, which speaks to Lori’s customer focus. She is not happy until she has the right mortgage for her client.
