Prev Hero Next Hero

Lori joined the Army at 19 and served for 14 years. As one of four female mechanics in her Battalion, Lori faced obstacles from those who doubted her but the patriotic duty she felt to her country fuelled her perseverance. "I fought hard. I went to every school that I needed and I trained hard," she said. It paid off. Throughout her service, she rose through the ranks from Junior Soldier to Infantry Team Leader.

After ten years overseas, Lori incurred an injury working to repair heavy equipment for her unit but chose to continue her service in the face of adversity. Instead of retiring to recover, she spent the next five years in the Warrior Transition Battalion assisting other wounded service members. "I wanted to show them what they were able to do," she said. Among many projects, Lori started a softball league to aid amputees in their physical therapy. "It really made me want to do more for people."

As a Veteran, Lori is Co-Chairman in her local United Way where she advocates for soldiers and their families. In 2012 she was awarded Soldier Volunteer of the Year. Aside from her work with veterans, Lori volunteers for Meals on Wheels, Toys For Tots, Backpack Buddies, and childhood literacy programs. "Since I can no longer serve in uniform I want to serve in my community so I can still make an impact." Currently Lori is studying Business Administration and Sociology. She hopes to build on her life's work by starting a non-profit to aid veterans.
