Lori graduated from Calvin College with Bachelors of Arts in Organizational Communication and Spanish. During and after her time at Calvin, she gained experience in writing, public relations, marketing, and office administration, all of which prepared her for the role of Marketing Specialist at Open Sky. Living in Durango and being part of the Open Sky team provides Lori with the perfect opportunity to combine her communication skills with her passion for helping others and her thirst for adventure.
Lori is from Kalamazoo, MI, but has roots in the Southwest. Growing up, she spent time in Durango almost every year when visiting her grandparents in northwest New Mexico. Lori loves to take advantage of being outdoors and these experiences have led her to truly believe in nature’s therapeutic qualities. She values her role in Open Sky’s efforts to harness these qualities and lead individuals and families to fulfilled lives and healthy relationships.
By traveling, exploring, volunteering, reading, and spending quality time with loved ones, Lori aims to expand her understanding of the world and her love for the people in it. She also enjoys playing cards with family and friends, camping in the mountains and deserts of the Four Corners, cooking new recipes, and loving on her cuddly and adventurous mutt, Arwen.
