Lori is the consummate professional. She does her homework and understands
the complexities of important health education issues as well as the constituencies.
Lori is respectful, but also passionate regarding our children’s health and well-being.
I was so grateful to work with her during our Texas health standards revision process.
Her recommendations and counsel from long years of experience, research and credibility were invaluable.
