While attending the Woodstock Woodshow, Lori was introduced to the Conestoga College Woodworking Course. After completing the 3 year Woodworking Technology Co-op Program at Conestoga College, Lori worked in the commercial millwork industry, taking on roles as estimator, project manager and operations manager, as well as teaching Woodworking part-time at Fanshawe College and Lee Valley.

Working at the London Community Woodshop is definitely my dream job and beyond my imagination at the beginning of my journey. It is a place where people love creating and sharing with one another and where magic happens every day! From the beginning, woodworking has made a positive difference in my life and I thoroughly enjoy helping others have a similar experience. I am grateful each day I come into the shop.
