Lori began working for Windhorse in 2008 on a very part-time basis, offering technical writing services, light research, and administrative support. She entered the clinical realm as a Housemate in 2011. Currently Operations Coordinator, she also acts as a Basic Attender. Lori has a PhD in Linguistics, with an emphasis in sociocultural issues such as identity formation. Although immersion in the mental health realm is not the career she envisioned for herself, she finds it a natural fit for her educational background and her values.
