Lori obtained her Master's Degree in Audiology from the University of British Columbia in 2009. During her studies, she was awarded a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) grant to support her thesis research in the study of auditory steady-state interactions. After graduating, Lori moved to Calgary where she has since been employed in both private and public auditory settings. This diverse employment background has given Lori a unique insight into both worlds, keeping her current in her field and able to provide comprehensive services for patients and clients alike.
Prior to her career in audiology, Lori spent 10 years as a biologist, surveying native plants and animals in BC, AB and SK. She continues her love of nature through hiking, camping and gardening. To further stay out of trouble, Lori bikes, plays piano, and helps coach her twin girls' ringette team. She looks forward to creating new connections and helping clients receive the best possible care.
