The Women Behind the Brand
Meet Lori Purnell & Elizabeth O’Donnell
Lori, the founder of Spencer-SHE, recalls fond childhood memories of creating businesses in her neighborhood to fund her spending money. At ten she started a puppet theater and wrote plays for the shows, making money selling popcorn and lemonade alongside ticket sales. These seemingly small moments in time were actually foreshadowing what she would begin in 1980 as an adult.
What initially appealed to Lori about the career of engineering was the ability to work in different locations daily and the challenge of various scenarios within the workplace. Then, after becoming an engineer Lori moved to Birmingham to start her own business with the knowledge that there was an existing need for environmental, health, and safety consultants in small to mid-size businesses. She received her professional engineers license shortly after in Civil Engineering. Spencer-SHE emerged as a full service engineering consulting and workplace safety training organization qualified to perform all environmental, health and safety with hazardous materials transportation required compliance based services.
Elizabeth O’Donnell is a nationally recognized Certified Safety Professional. Elizabeth brings her business acumen from ownership of her business, her business degree and Masters in Safety Engineering to mesh well with all of the talents of the Spencer-SHE Team.
