Luanne “Lu” Arredondo

A fourth-generation Rotarian, Luanne “Lu” Arredondo was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado, raised on the family ranch in Corrales, New Mexico, and grew up the youngest daughter of 11 children.  Paul Harris was often the focus of conversation at the dinner table – also a place where many of her life lessons about service to others originated.  Luanne relocated to Southern California in 1989 where she would eventually meet and marry hubby Moises (aka “Moe”).

Luanne graduated summa cum laude with a double Bachelor of Science degree in psychology and biology from the University of New Mexico.  She went on to graduate magna cum laude with a double masters in finance and business administration from California State University, Los Angeles, specializing in change management.  After 15 years of working at the executive level with Fortune 50 organizations, Luanne opened LA Business Consultants, LLC in 2005, growing it from a small one person office into an international film, finance, and change management organization.
