Lori joined Kids Hope USA as a mentor in 2010. This was also the first year her church, Atascocita United Methodist Church started their program. Very quickly, she realized that she wanted to be more involved with the Kids Hope program and volunteered to be her director’s Communications Coordinator. In 2011, Atascocita UMC decided to adopt a second elementary school and Lori agreed to become the director of that program at Timbers Elementary.
She is a graduate of Louisiana State University with a Bachelor’s in Music Education. She is happily married to her husband of 20 years and they have two daughters who occupy a lot of her time. She is very excited to join the Kids Hope USA Program Support team and to support directors in the Houston area as they launch and sustain their programs.
