Lori is a licensed clinical psychologist. She began her career working with adults and children who had experienced personal trauma in Newport, Rhode Island, a city of significant economic disparity. Through this work, Lori witnessed the effects of poverty on the ability to access resources and on child development, family relationships and mental health. She also witnessed great resilience, strength, kindness, and growth.
When Lori moved to Minnesota ten years ago, she began working in geriatrics. She again witnessed the effects of poverty and limited resources on vulnerable members of our society, while also witnessing resilience, hope, strength and considerable kindness. Lori has grown through these experiences and is now bringing her passion, knowledge, intelligence, patience, excellent work ethic, kindness, understanding of human nature, openness and progressive spirit to Inclusivi-tee.
