Dori Tompa, Interim Executive Director

Co-founder of Steel City Rowing Club, Dori served as Executive Director for 20 years focusing on the development of the new programs and construction of the new boathouse.  She graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 1990 in the Department of Architecture with a minor in music and still holds her architecture license and currently is an architect with Pfaffmann + Associates. In addition to eight national titles, Dori is an indoor rowing world champion and five-time US National Champion. She is certified as a level III coach (highest level attainable) and has coached many athletes along-side Laci to the national championships. Although Dori’s primary focuses are development and rowing programming, her soft spot is impressionable youth who can benefit from quality programming, especially at-risk youth.
