Running on coffee, chaos and curse words with a “tell it like it is” approach to life, Lori supports all things recovery in her own unique and trenchant style. While current labels include International Speaker, Coach, Author, Podcast Host, Producer, and Recovery Advocate, Lori's most important roles in life are Wife, Mommy and Educator.
After ending her tumultuous career as a drunken housewife in 2015, (with continued mental illnesses today), Lori has devoted herself to a life of recovery advocacy - joining in the crusade to end the stigma, shame and embarrassment conventionally tied to mental illness, the disease of addiction, and recovery itself!
As a former Executive who climbed the corporate ladder for companies such as Microsoft and Charles River, to a Franchisee turned stay-at- home Mom, Lori has the experience and expertise that allows her to relate to Executives and Housewives alike.
Lori shares her dynamic personality as host of the hit podcast The Recovery Hour, was named as one of Sierra Nevada’s "Top 20 Powerful Women" and is currently touring the US with her Partner Michelle Smith, speaking to Corporate America about Addiction Awareness & Mental Wellness in the Workplace.
In addition to Lori's social and media presence, she lends her expertise and experiences to clients as a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), Certified Professional Recovery Coach (CPRC), A She Recovers® designated Coach (SRCD), a Nevada State certified Peer Recovery Support Specialist (PRSS) and a Certified Facilitator in Addiction Awareness (CFAA).
