Lori grew up in a Christian family in Jacksonville, Florida, and has always had a strong interest in missions. After getting her B.S. in Christian Education at Florida Christian College, she attended Cincinnati Bible Seminary where she received her M.A. in practical ministries. Lori went on her first short-term mission trip while in graduate school and felt God calling her to be more directly involved in missions work.
Since then, Lori has been actively involved with the mission team at her church for over 15 years where she has been a part of many cross-cultural activities and 13 mission trips to Mexico, Haiti, Southeast Asia, Djibouti and Kyrgyzstan. While attending the International Conference on Missions in 2012, Lori learned about the work of New International and felt God leading her to join the New International team.
Lori is based in Fort Myers, Florida, working out of the CGO. God is doing some amazing things globally and she feels privileged to serve Him at New International in the role of Director of Short-term Mobilization. Lori is excited to be working with New International to proclaim Christ and make disciples globally.
With New International since 2013
