LORI HANEMANN

OPERATIONS MANAGER

Lori comes to Tenzo from Fairbanks, Alaska where she worked tirelessly in Development and Operations for environmental non-profits, fighting to protect wildlands and wildlife in the far north. Prior, she lived five years above the Arctic circle in a fly-in-only village managing a tourist lodge and exploring the mountainous Brooks Range. She loved staying fit by being outside cross country skiing, guiding adventure travelers, and snow machining across the frozen tundra.

Today, she’s happy to be in the warmth and sunshine of Southern California embracing her new role as an empty-nester and hustling at a fast moving start-up. Her degree in dietetics and interest in bettering her health through nutrition led her to Tenzo Tea, where she works in Operations keeping an overview on fulfillment and finance systems. She is thrilled to have found the benefits of matcha for sustaining her energy as she strives towards her weight loss goals and for maintaining concentration on her work at a growing company. Lori enjoys spending her free time looking for trails and cool beaches, finding ways to support women’s equality projects, and watching English soccer on the weekends.

LORI’s Favorite way to Drink Tenzo is:  Oat milk latte, extra strong matcha shot, no sweetener; sipping it while sitting across a table from a friend, catching up on the amazing stories of life.
