Lori has been working as a freelance writer for about a year, but her experience with writing goes much further back. Even when she was in grade school she loved writing and could be found outside on the playground during recess with a notebook and a pen, scribbling away. At University, she studied rhetoric with a concentration in creative writing and worked for her school’s newspaper, and completed an editing internship. Some of her short stories were even published in the school’s literary magazine Montage.
After taking a CELTA course she moved to Chile for a year. Traveling was a life changing experience that spurred her to follow her dreams of writing and traveling at the same time. She has expert knowledge about traveling, and many of the adventure sports she’s tried while making her way around South America.
She also enjoys writing about psychology and health and wellness and has worked as a ghostwriter for Sovereign Health. As a vegetarian and avid jogger, she’s very health conscious herself. Although she doesn’t have any formal training in medical writing, she managed health care and pension benefits for a year for Mercer. More importantly, health and wellness writing is interesting and important to her because her family has had a history of mental and health issues.
Although these topics are especially interesting, Lori loves learning so enjoys writing about almost anything. In the past, she has also written about home renovations and construction, video games, online marketing, and product reviews.
