Lori Barfield


Lori joined her first Internet startup as a senior system administrator. When that company went public, she was hooked, and helping smaller firms prevail against well established rivals has been her passion ever since. She is currently a consulting COO and a chair at the SCaLE and ShellCon conferences in Southern California. She developed the unique RaiseMe career consulting effort at ShellCon, which has successfully helped people obtain their first security engineering roles in the industry.

Lori is also a mother of five. With the kids, the dog, and a horse, she is grateful for a full and happy home. And the occasional escape to the woods with her husband.
