Lori was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but her life has included nearly 30 moves around the country. Twenty of those have been with her husband, Scott. They share 3 twenty-something children who live scattered throughout the United States. It has been through those moves and experiences that Lori has been able to engage, learn, and grow with both diverse and marginalized communities. Her passion is people and the work that Citizens Project is committed to fits directly into communities she is committed to. In her free time, she enjoys any and all-time hiking in the Rocky Mountains that surround her, cheering on the Clemson Tigers, feeding and baking for anyone who knocks on the door, and of course spoiling Denver, the 4-year-old Puli.
