Lori received her Juris Doctor with honors from the University of Florida Levin College of Law in December 2004, from which she graduated with honors. Proud to be a Florida Gator, Lori had also attended the UF as an undergraduate, graduating with honors with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, as well as a Minor in Education. Choosing her law school focus early, as a student member of the Virgil B. Hawkins Civil Clinic, Lori assisted indigent clients with family law issues.
In February 2015, Lori had her own child, Tripp. Now, she works from home, juggling her career with parenthood. While she spends her mornings teaching new mommies how to stay fit as a Fit4Mom fitness instructor, her afternoons are dedicated to her practice. Somehow, despite delivering Anna Grace in December, 2018, she finds time to indulge her passion for long-distance running, recently qualifying for the Boston Marathon and passing the finish line as second overall female in the Marathon of the Treasure Coast.
Lori has always gravitated towards alternative dispute resolution for families in conflict, and she is especially enthusiastic about the benefits of collaborative practice.
