Public Spectacle Staff - Lori EacklesLori Eackles just celebrated her 15 year anniversary with the Public Spectacle. She grew up in Knoxville and now lives with her husband and two small daughters in Boonsboro, MD. She enjoys the challenge of child rearing, which takes up much of her time.

Lori takes pride in knowing her customers: she once found a pair of glasses in a local parking lot and was able to identify their owner and return them, just from having worked on the glasses!
