Prior to joining Pathway, Lori was the principal of Lori Lustberg, Esq., LLC, providing mediation and divorce financial planning services to individuals and couples. Through her personal and professional experiences, Lori witnessed the power of financial planning to transform lives, which inspired her to make a mid-life career change to focus mainly on life-long financial planning relationships.
Lori is passionate about working with high net worth women facing a life change (such as divorce, widowhood, a career shift, empty nest or retirement), who seek to become financially empowered and take charge of their destiny.
