, Director of Educational Affairs for the American Military Partner Association (AMPA)
, completed her undergraduate studies at UC Santa Barbara. She earned her Doctorate of Pharmacy (PharmD) with an emphasis in Health Policy & Management from UC San Francisco. Lori has specialty clinical training in Ambulatory Care, HIV/AIDS Clinical Care, Designing Clinical Research, and provided direct patient care for several years in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Shortly after the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” (DADT), Lori relocated to be with her partner, stationed in San Diego and currently an active duty U.S. Marine Corps helicopter pilot and squadron department head. She found the American Military Partner Association (AMPA) after her move when struggling to figure out how to “survive military life,” and since then has been determined to give back to the organization that helped her so wholeheartedly. Lori is dedicated to critical educational efforts aimed at strengthening LGBT military families’ representation and engagement in policy changes. She is working to expand AMPA’s research platform and designing a database of vital information and statistics about our LGBT military families to ensure they are well represented within the larger military community. Lori has appeared in media interviews on local and national broadcasts, and has been invited to speak at several conferences on behalf of our LGBT military families. Her educational outreach campaigns and collaborations with other national advocacy organizations help inform LGBT military families, elected officials, and the general public about disparities in our families’ access to services and benefits – as well as how to assist with means to change them.
