fourteen and continued into her forties. Her low self-esteem propelled her into becoming a stressed out “Type A” corporate workaholic. As she struggled to find balance and happiness for almost 30 years, Lori an amateur body-builder established a deep understanding of diet, nutrition, exercise and alternative medicine and their effect on human behavior.

Lori left the corporate world to share her story and pursue her passion of self-improvement and helping others create balance in their own lives.
