Lori graduated from Taylor University in 1991 with an elementary education degree and earned her Master’s in Education from Ball State University in 1996. After teaching for 22 years (nearly all in 3rd grade), Lori decided it was time to return to the Taylor community. She now serves as the Assistant to Campus Ministries, which consists of supporting the campus pastor, the counseling center and the honors program. Lori loves her daily interaction with students as she helps them get plugged in to counseling sessions, chapel programming or other campus opportunities. She and her husband, Steve, have 3 kids (Haley, a 2019 TU grad, Taylor, a 2021 TU grad, and Carson, a TU sophomore). She loves spending time with her family, traveling, watching sports and doing CrossFit.
