By: 0

For this week, we have the honor of showcasing the one and only Lorie Goodman.  She is the rock of her family and exudes love and generosity in every environment she is in.  She’s a woman who will support you endlessly and definitely  a person you want in your corner.  In addition to being a fantastic mother, friend, sister, wife, and aunt, she is a true beast in the gym.  She doesn’t give herself enough credit, but she is a wonder woman in all of our eyes.  Lorie, you are appreciated and loved, and we are so blessed by your friendship and presence in CFE.
