Lori has been an enthusiastic cheerleader for the Lansing area for 15+ years. She still gets excited about all the fun things there are to see and do in her adopted hometown yet hasn't quite figured out how to fit everything she wants to do into a weekend. Favorite things include a fall afternoon tailgating and cheering the Spartans on to victory, a great classic car show like Car Capital in July, a stroll through one of the many beautiful horticulture gardens at MSU and a delicious dinner shared with family and friends at a local eatery. Her goal? Simple. It's to inspire people to love Lansing as much as she does! #LoveLansing
