Executive Director of MemphisSend Message
While attending the University of Mississippi, Lori worked for a Memphis based company where she acted as Finance Director. After learning of the DIDD program through friends working in various sectors of the field, she began working as a recruiter for Maxim Healthcare. After seeing the difference these programs made in people’s lives, she knew this was where she wanted to be. Within a year, Lori moved to Cookeville, TN and was promoted to Administrator where she and her team established and grew the Supported Living Program for middle TN. During the Maxim/CareFocus transition for the West region, Lori was offered the opportunity to move back to her hometown and continue acting as Administrator for the Memphis office. Providing quality care while promoting independence is fundamental in shaping each individual’s life. Because of the opportunities and the focus on advocacy that D&S promotes, Lori is excited to be part of the D&S team.
