Lori and her husband, John, live in Northern Virginia where they have raised their five children. Over the years, she and her family have followed and supported the work of 25:40 through its annual walk and spectacular concerts. Lori was inspired to become more active in 25:40’s work after she visited its Canzibe mission site and volunteered in its children’s programs. Her son, Jay, has also volunteered in Canzibe, assisting in the establishment of its aftercare program. Following a career on Capitol Hill, Lori now directs programs in global food security and aid effectiveness at The Lugar Center. She joined the board in 2013.
