Like her sister Amy, Lori grew up watching her dad work with clients and their families to create financial stability and confidence . After graduating from Bethel College with a B.S. in Business Administration, Lori worked as an accountant and employee benefits specialist. In 2018, she joined her sister at Bergkamp Financial, where their family has worked to bring quality financial care for over three decades.
After watching a friend manage the consequences of bad financial advice, Lori knew she could make a difference by leaving her career in human resources and becoming a financial advisor. She thrives on creating strategies custom-tailored to her client’s unique needs. For Lori, the process of client discovery is not only exciting but rewarding when she gets to witness financial confidence take shape in her clients’ lives.
Outside the Office
In 2002, Lori married her high school sweetheart, Ryan, also a member of Bergkamp Financial, and together they have two children. She and her family live in Wichita, where they are active in their church and busy with sports and music events for their children. Their family enjoys traveling and exploring new places together, attending the Music Theatre of Wichita and Broadway in Wichita performances.
Lori is a member of the Board of Directors for her church. She feels this has helped deepen her relationships with fellow Christians, many of whom have mentored her within her church. She enjoys giving back to others and building relationships.
Lori holds the Accredited Asset Management Specialist (AAMS®) professional designation, recognized as an industry benchmark for asset management credentials, and endorsed by top financial firms. She holds FINRA Series 7 and 66 licensure and Life and Health Insurance Licenses.
