After immersing herself in Seattle’s culture, food, environment, education, and community for the last 15 years, Lori returned home to Owen County in 2022 with her husband, Dail, cat, Butters, and her tarantula, Adelita. Lori hit the ground running, working at DePauw University’s Hartman Center for Civic Engagement, assisting students with their commitment to service and leadership in their community. Lori recently transitioned to the Monroe County Community School Corporation, assisting with student service needs throughout the district. In her free time, Lori volunteers at the Historic Tivoli Theatre, is an active Owen County Garden Club member, dances at the Spencer Pride CommUnity Center, enjoys live music, and plans to build a home near her family. As the new Farmers Market Manager, Lori is very excited to work with the Owen County Farmers Market board to bring excitement and grow the sense of community.
