Living the dream…then moving it. Repeatedly.
Is this familiar? The phone rings. It’s you partner. “Baby, I have a new job. I’ve been traded. I’m flying out to Indianapolis now. See you there.” Click. And just like that, you have a new job, too. It includes selling the house and moving the entire family and their lives to a new town filled with 100% strangers and little to no support.
Welcome to the exciting world of professional sports—a career that typically includes being with several different teams. Three teams? Nine teams? It varies from family to family. But rest assured, you’ll be moving again.
How nice would it be to have someone to help move your pro sports family? Someone who understands the challenges specific to the pro sports life because they’ve been there, done that, and figured out a better way?
We thought so too.
Who's reinventing the game?
Lori Warhop / Founder & 12-Time Veteran of The Self-Move
This is a true story. Lori was in a job interview. Her potential new boss pulls out her resume. He looks at it, looks at her, looks back at the resume. And... Silence.
What did he see? A year in New Mexico with a sales job. A year unemployed living in London. A year in Dallas. And now, this move to Boston. He finally says, “Your resume concerns me. There’s a lot of moving around and a sketchy employment history.”
Lori relies, “I realize it looks like I’m running from the law. But I’m really just married to a football coach.” He laughed and hired her on the spot. If only the rest of this lifestyle were so simple…
Since graduating from the University of Kansas, Lori has moved 12 times in 25 years. George, her coach husband, presently works for Tampa Bay. Their two children are finally in college after years of being moved from city to city and school to school. Through determination and tenacity, she’s made this sports-gypsy lifestyle work for over 25 years.
After a quarter of a century doing this, Lori gets it like few do. That’s why she started Moving Pro Sports. Ours is a small and unique community. And Lori is prone to idealism—which is why this project even exists. She finally wondered why on earth there was no service to meet the unique demands of the pro-sports family on the move. So, she decided to do something about it.
Lori considers her greatest accomplishment to be raising two adaptable, compassionate kids, each possessing a strong moral compass. With Moving Pro Sports and Living Pro Sports, she want to extend to her fellow sports families the kind of support that made all this possible. Lori’s goal is to ease the burden for others facing the challenge of the pro sports lifestyle.
Cindi Cross / Logistics Specialist
Cindi knows how to move stuff—and people. A 20-year veteran of the relocation industry, she is the brains behind Cross Global Management. Her experience building and maintaining a supplier network gives her the ability to make the kind of connections we rely on and trust. Additionally, Cindi’s personal insight into the effects moving has on the families being moved informs her mission of providing superior service in a stressful time.
With a track record of managing more than 10,000 domestic and international moves, Cindi understands what it takes to get things done, follow up on everything, and ensure it all goes as promised.
Cindi does the stuff most of us can’t wrap our heads around. From managing third-party relocation services implementation to assisting relocation supplier selection, from day-to-day management to ongoing performance metrics for all services, from invoicing and audits, to cost negotiation and program choices, from supplier evaluations to RFI/RFP...well, you get the picture.
Cindi is also principal of Cross Global Surveyors LLC. This covers all the things you don’t want to do, like working with insurers and other relocation partners, storage, packaging, stowage, pre-shipment condition surveys, loading and unloading, delivery surveys, damage and loss surveys and investigations, loss adjusting, subrogation against third parties…again, you get the picture.
Cindi is by far one of the most positive people you’ll ever meet, and she’s a force to be reckoned with. A former competitive rower who once sold water ski boats to territories in the deep south, she considers her greatest accomplishment to be mainstreaming her autistic son who just made the high-school varsity football team, and plans on a career in marine biology.
