Lori earned her B.S. in Community Health Education from Texas A&M University in 1994. She began working in the field of abstinence education at the student health center where she wrote a program called “How to Make Love without Doing It!” that was presented in college dorms. After she graduated, she was asked to write a unit text book for HealthEdco/WRS Group called “Abstinence: A Positive Choice.” In 1995, Lori took a position as prevention coordinator for the Women’s Pregnancy Center in Houston. In 1998, she co-founded a new 501(c)3 organization called Fort Bend ALERT (Abstinence Leadership, Education and Resources for Teens) which was awarded a federal Title V grant to provide abstinence education to 7 school
districts. At that time, she also joined the Aim for Success speaking staff for two years. When her family relocated to the Dallas area in 2007, she worked at Aim as the Health Education Coordinator. She held several different non-profit leadership positions in the community, and then was asked to rejoin the AFS staff in May 2016. Her passion is helping young people and families be healthy – physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually. She and her husband Chris have four children.
