Lori Grant, CPA
Senior Accountant

Being a native Oregonian, Lori has always loved the Northwest. Her love of biking and hiking is a perfect fit for the Oregon lifestyle and growing up in Florence gave her access to the many wonderful experiences found only on the Oregon coast.

Lori attended George Fox University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business and economics. She always knew that a career in accounting was what she wanted to do. She has an aunt, who not only prepared taxes, but enjoyed doing it. And because her personality was similar to her aunt’s, she and her family knew that accounting would be a perfect fit for her too.

After graduating from college, Lori moved to Salem and has worked in the accounting field. Over the years, she has developed and honed her accounting skills and understanding of taxation issues for nonprofit organizations and business entities. Lori’s clients will tell you that she has a driving desire to help them and puts their best interests first.

Lori’s hardworking style benefits her clients and is evident in her ability to complete tasks efficiently and correctly. “I enjoy customizing the client’s accounting processes and/or reports to benefit the client’s needs,” says Lori, “this can be very rewarding.”

One of Lori’s favorite quotes by Zig Ziglar sums up her outlook on work and life: “Look back in forgiveness, forward in hope, down in compassion, and up with gratitude.”

Lori began working with McCoy Foat in 2015 and immediately knew the firm was a good match for her. She likes the flexible work schedule; working as a team with her coworkers; the diverse clientele; and the variety of work. Lori lives in Salem with her husband and two cats. She enjoys reading, biking and spending time with her family.
