Keystone Custom Homes welcomes Lora Johnson, our new Director of Human Resources!
We asked Lora a few questions….
What is your favorite part about working at Keystone?
My favorite part about working at Keystone is the people. There is obviously a very talented staff here as seen in the beautiful homes they build, not to mention the numerous awards. Everyone here is friendly and very helpful and it appears that they love what they do. I enjoyed the Life Study that I attended and was able to get to know some of the folks through that outlet.
Working in human resources, you get to interface with just about everyone, which I enjoy. HR performs many functions – it is a multi-faceted department where your days are never quite the same. My goal is to enhance the camaraderie, help build a positive, encouraging, constructive environment and ultimately make this one of PA’s “Great Places To Work!” I want everyone to be successful in what they do and I am here to assist. I read a book some years ago titled, “Jesus, Life Coach: Learn from the Best”. This is one of the quotes from the book I try to remember, “The secret to success can be found in the most successful man who ever lived, a man who changed the world like no other.” I base my level of success on Him and not the world.
What do you see as a WOW feature of our homes?
I think the biggest “wow” feature in a Keystone Custom Home would have to be the luxury, Venetian bathrooms. I also love the gourmet kitchens.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
Most people wouldn’t know that I’m very competitive or that I play the guitar and sing. My daughter, Nicole and I led worship music at our church and she has a beautiful soloist voice which she uses to the glory of God. I have been in ministry as a pastor’s wife for over 20 years. I am also an avid horse lover and am the proud owner of an 18 year old Quarter Horse gelding named Benny. At one point in my life, I wanted to be a horse trainer and be in the barn all day working with horses. They are my passion. My other passions include being with my family, traveling and watching my son play basketball and now football. I am a very vocal mother in the audience and continually embarrass him.
My current favorite basketball team is the Golden State Warriors (Stephen Curry) and now I am a big Philadelphia Eagles fan because of Tim Tebow. If they drop him, well then I won’t be so much of a fan. It’s not that I think he’s a great quarterback, but I’m a fan because he walks the walk and talks the talk.
