Lori grew up and attended Homestead High School near San Francisco, California, where she raised her son and daughter. She fell in love with insurance in 1993 when she went to work for her State Farm agent and she has been working in the industry ever since. She obtained her Property & Casualty and Life & Health licenses in 1994 and 1996, respectively, and has held her CISR designation since 2009. Lori moved to Texas in April, 2013, to be closer to her daughter and son-in-law. She has been handling commercial accounts at Associated Insurance Managers, first in Houston and then in Albany, since shortly after she arrived in Texas.
In her spare time she enjoys gardening and spending time with her daughter.
