Lori has worked in the field of addiction treatment since 2006. Her career at Sober College began in 2012 as a Mentor in the Women’s and Men’s Primary Programs. Lori quickly moved up into her new position as Activities Coordinator. As Activities Coordinator, Lori organizes all of the larger weekend activities for Sober College clients including things like trips to Six Flags Magic Mountain and skydiving. As Activities Coordinator she also heads up Sober College’s CORE, or Community Outreach Program, and works with the counselors and treatment team to ensure that clients are meeting their required number of hours and keeping up with their programs.
Lori’s experience in the field of addiction treatment has led her to pursue a degree in social work because of the joy she gets by helping others. “I do this because my family has a long history of addiction,” explains Lori, “I want to help save lives and suffering for other families. I believe the program at Sober College really works and I love being a part of the team here.”
