About Lori Bizzoco

Lori (48)Lori Vadala Bizzoco grew up on a five-acre farm in Central New York with dreams of making it big in New York City. Coming from four generations of entrepreneurs, she learned the tricks of the trade for successfully running a business at an early age and was always encouraged to take entrepreneurship by the reins. In 2010, she used the lessons passed down by her family to launch NV Media Inc., an integrated communications company providing services in public relations, digital marketing, branding and consulting.

Before starting her own venture, Lori worked in Corporate America for 15 years as a public relations executive. Holding a senior-level leadership position at one of the world’s top PR agencies Burson-Marsteller, Lori helped oversee three of the world’s largest pharmaceutical product launches to date: Botox, Viagra and Enbrel. She has also represented high-profile personalities, among them Dr. Oz, Hillary Clinton, Lainie Kazan, and Jack Nicklaus.

Despite her successes during this time, she knew she wanted to own her own business. So, Lori decided to take her love of writing and her background in brand marketing, and combined the two elements to launch NV Media’s first brand property, CupidsPulse.com. This one-of a-kind relationship site takes the latest celebrity news and repackages it to help singles and couples navigate their love lives in the modern world. Lori accomplished this while nine months pregnant and in the process of moving, no less!

Along with being an entrepreneur, Lori has always had a passion for mentoring. For the past 20 years, she has helped countless colleagues, employees and interns hone and develop their professional skills and passions. Some of Lori’s mentees are now Vice Presidents of companies – and still asking for advice!  Nowadays, she guest lectures at colleges and universities across the NY/NJ area including Seton Hall, Baruch, Hofstra, Aldelphi, William Paterson, New York Institute of Technology, and more. She is also working with Illinois State University to assist in developing a curriculum on entrepreneurship.

Over the years, Lori’s been featured and quoted in leading press outlets including Forbes, Yahoo!, Redbook, AOL, FOX News, The Wall Street Journal and The Suze Orman show, among others.

From growing up on a farm to living out her dream, Lori continues to grow her empire, while helping inspire others along the way.
