Lorie has worked at Grace for 18 years. She has had a passion to teach preschool since she was in high school. Lorie started at Grace in the KinderCare and daycare program while her children were young. When a teaching position became available in the Preschool, she already had her ECE units and began working in the 2 year old room. Lorie’s goal has always been to bond with families, encourage them to attend Grace Lutheran Church and School, and to continue their child’s education at Grace.

Lorie has been married to her husband for 24 years and has three children: Amanda, 23; Russell, 21; and Taylor, 14. Lorie’s hobbies include watching her daughter Taylor play softball and spending time with her family.
