Lori Seckel

Regional director since 2013

"I help others travel down the same path I took."

Your career as a regional director is full of important moments. From the joy of building a successful team to the satisfaction of coaching others to be the best they can be, you’ll impact people’s lives. And you’ll have some fun along the way.

  • Started my Modern Woodmen career right out of college.
  • Became a managing partner in 2010.
  • Progressed to regional director in 2013.
  • Always wanted to be a teacher.
  • Now I make a difference by coaching adults.

Lori in the community

I’m proud every time I hear about a service project or Matching Fund event someone on our team has held.

Modern Woodmen offers so many opportunities for our representatives to get involved.

When I hear about these projects, I know my team understands the impact they can have in their communities. That’s also when I know they have the heart and passion to help others … even when no one is watching.

Awarding member benefits

A highlight in my career was the first time one of my members was chosen for a Modern Woodmen scholarship.

Modern Woodmen has awarded college scholarships to young members since 1969.

This high school graduate received $16,000 toward her higher education expenses. There’s always stiff competition for these scholarships. I was excited to be able to present this benefit to her, which was made possible because I helped her become a Modern Woodmen member.
