Executive Director of GreenevilleSend Message
Lorie has extensive professional and personal experience in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities. She began her career in 1994 as a Direct Support Professional. Lorie also had a loving great uncle who inspired her to pursue the field of supporting people with disabilities. Her personal role surpassed being a great niece but also her uncle’s conservator until his passing last year. After four (4) years in direct support she wanted to expand her knowledge and skills which led her to becoming an Independent Support Coordinator (ISC) with the Arc of Washington County. During her 11 years with the Arc she advanced from an ISC to Lead ISC, ISC Manager and later the Associate Director.
In 2009 Lorie was promoted into a position with the Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (DIDD) as Case Management Coordinator for Upper East Tennessee, followed by the Agency Team Coordinator in 2012. Lorie’s desire to return to working in the community and providing direct services led her back to the community as the Executive Director of Greeneville area D&S Community Services.
Lorie is married to Mark and they have three children- Adam, Jamie and Bekah. Lorie graduated from Tusculum college with a Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Management.
