In addition to supporting her clients and managing her graphic design business, Lori spent many years working at an established print company. Her creative insight, knowledge and leadership helped to establish the design department as she trained new designers and initiated a variety of client services. In this capacity, she oversaw design production and all aspects of pre-press work and design consultation. She became a specialist with numerous advanced design programs, typographic principles, layout and photo editing.

As she grew her business, knowledge and expertise, Lori discovered a new passion, which she quickly fell in love with — teaching. Lori loves to learn and share her experiences and expertise; she graduated at the top of her class at the Technological Education Program at Queen’s University in the Facility of Education. Since then, she has obtained a Specialist in Technological Education and has taken several Additional Qualification courses through the University of Toronto and York University. Her strong work ethic and love for design allows her to balance Graphic a la Design and teaching.

Lori has contributed to the success of an array of local and internationally known businesses. As an industry leader and teacher of marketing and communications technology — creative, enterprising design and lifelong learning is a way of life.
