CtK specifically targets leaders who will influence our political agenda and drive the state of our democracy over the next 20+ years.
Lori holds a M.Ed. in human resource development and counseling from Vanderbilt University and a B.A. in business administration from Michigan State University. She is a certified executive coach and accredited in a wide variety of psychometrics.
