Miss Lori may have come to National attention as the first ever live TV host of the PBS Kids Preschool Block in 2006, but she started capturing attention long before at the age of 4 belting out Helen Reddy’s “I am Woman Hear Me Roar” in her Milwaukee home. By the age of nine she was performing throughout Wisconsin, and eventually the country. Miss Lori graduated cum laude from The Boston Conservatory and spent the next decade working with the likes of Barry Manilow, Harry Lennix, August Wilson, Liz Calloway, Dick Van Patten, Hal Prince, Bea Arthur, and Marilyn McCoo to name a few. During the same period Miss Lori was also giving birth to her 3 precious children, Skyler, Kaiann and Jaedyn. In 2004 she merged her two beloved worlds of motherhood and performance with the creation of her company The CAMPUS Inc, known popularly as Miss Lori’s CAMPUS. Ever since Miss Lori has focused her heartfelt work as an entertainer, teacher, and writer to improve the overall health and wellness of children and their families, uniting them through her artistic contributions.
