Lori inspires to help people be the healthiest version of themselves through food. Working with KESFNL to ensure school children grow and learn to their fullest potential is her most rewarding work experience thus far. Lori continues to volunteer at her children’s KES Club, where she is also School Council Chair.
Lori loves home decorating and has an Interior Decorating Certificate from QC Design School in Ottawa. She also loves honey and dreams of owning her own beehive one day.
