Lori just celebrated 25 years of marriage and the graduation of her second and final child from high school. She currently works in the Center for Career and Calling at Seattle Pacific University and previously served with World Vision, where she loved the travel part of her job so much, that she left it for an around the world trip with her family. Lori has lived in the Columbia City/Rainier Valley neighborhood for 27 years, attending Emerald City Bible Fellowship for just as long, where she loves to teach bible study and preach a sermon every now and then.
