Lori has been part of ESSDACK since 1997 and puts her creativity and computer skills to use preparing fliers, graphics and other materials for both ESSDACK conferences, staff projects, and patrons. Recently she added the title of Marketing and Sales Team Lead and feels fortunate that ESSDACK's staff is so deep with talented and gifted professionals it makes her job relatively easy.
Between them, Lori and husband John have five children (and one adorable granddaughter) scattered across the country in Denver, Fort Collins, Kansas City and Chicago. The family is rounded out with two rambunctious weimaraners named Quinn and Piper, as well as numerous grand-animals. Although taking pictures of her family and their activities is gratifying, her passion is wildlife and nature. Her dream job would be a National Geographic photographer.
