Lori loves being back home! Born in Sacramento and raised in Elk Grove, Lori started her career in television as an intern for CBS13 and Good Day Sacramento!
Lori graduated from Sonoma State University and landed her first reporting job at KIEM in Eureka, CA. She was a one-man-band, reporting and anchoring, plus shooting and editing all of her own stories.
From there she headed to Bakersfield. After two years of doing morning weather, it was off to Fort Myers, Florida. As a Reporter/Fill-in-Anchor at WZVN the most memorable stories were weather related. The most unforgettable interviews were the ones with victims of Hurricane Charlie in 2004.
