Lori Wendt

Lori Wendt
Title: Online support specialist
Distance and Virtual Learning

BS, Western Illinois University
MBA, Eastern Illinois University

If she’s not sewing, reading, spending time with family or inadvertently killing plants, Lori Wendt might be lecturing at one of the Business Ethics classes she teaches part time for Parkland. The Astoria, Illinois, native counts “being able to work with both students and faculty” among her greatest joys of the job. The best item to bribe her with (as many faculty know) is CHOCOLATE!

Lori finds inspiration from her husband, Tim, who also works at Parkland as director of the Office of Financial Aid and her daughter Sarah Meilike (who works in the Parkland Library) and son-in-law, Jon Meilike. If she’s not in town, she’s probably “someplace beachy, like Bermuda, where she and Tim plan to renew their vows next year for their 25th anniversary!"”
