Lori is a long time resident of Columbia. Married to Tom, with two adult children. She is a graduate of Stephens College with interest in Fashion and Design. Lori opened a retail business in the late 1990’s, Keeping Good Company, where she got to use both her business degree and love for design. A few years later, opened Girl Boutique to continue to prosper in both the business and fashion arena. Her children are both living in Columbia with their spouses and children.
Lori and Tom made a move to Springfield Missouri in 2009 after both children had grown and graduated from College. After returning almost two years ago back to Columbia, Lori is focused on family and friends. Spending as much time as possible with grandkids, traveling, playing tennis, Pure Barre, yoga and many mornings walking with friends. Lori has a new passion on the horizon with her daughter Ashley to start a nonprofit organization for the awareness and support of local Leukemia patients. This organization is Mission Orange. This experience with the Missouri Dancing with The Stars is definitely a step out of her comfort zone but she is glad to have the opportunity.
