Meet the Team: Lara Lovitt

Lara Lovitt


Meet Lara Lovitt, an administrative professional in our Hannibal office...


Q: Tell us a bit about yourself...

Lara: I live in Hannibal, MO with my husband, Tim, and our two kids. I have worked at Klingner for two years. Before joining the Klingner team, I was the gift shop manager at Hannibal Regional Hospital for four years and prior to that, a manager for Shopko for 17 years.

I am very involved in my church and am an active member of the Hannibal High School Band Boosters.


Q: What is your favorite childhood memory?

Lara: My favorite childhood memory is going to my grandma and grandpa's house every Sunday after church for lunch. I can still smell the roast and potatoes.


Q: Do you have a personal motto?

Lara: My motto is "Always do your very best and you will never be disappointed." If you are doing the best that you can at everything you do, no matter what the outcome is, you will not be disappointed because you have given your all.


Q: November is a month of gratefulness. What are you most grateful for?

Lara: I am grateful for my husband who is always there to support me and guide me in the right direction. I am grateful for my kids who make sure I know what really matters in life, the little things. I am grateful for my family, my church family, and my work family.


Q: What is your favorite movie?

Lara: My all-time favorite movie is Christmas Vacation. When my youngest child was a baby, the only way to calm them down was to play Christmas Vacation non-stop. Maybe that was really to calm me down! Either way, it worked on both of us. It is now a family tradition that Christmas Vacation must be playing as we put our Christmas tree up every year.


Q: After two years with Klingner, what stands out to you most?

Lara: The positive atmosphere. All those who I have encountered have been very friendly and helpful. I am very fortunate to be working with such a great  team.
