Lori has served as an organizer with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence since
January 2010.

After her daughter Emily was shot twice and survived the 2007 Virginia Tech
massacre, Lori became personally involved in gun violence prevention efforts.
She has worked with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the Virginia
Center for Public Safety, Protest Easy Guns and Mayors Against Illegal Guns. She
has lobbied on Capitol Hill in Washington and before the Virginia General
Assembly for responsible gun laws numerous times. She promotes awareness of the
issue by speaking to various groups from her perspective as a family member of
someone who has survived gun violence.

Lori graduated in 1976 from Saint Gertrude High School and attended Virginia
Tech for two years. After a successful career in real estate, Lori volunteered
for many neighborhood, church, school and civic organizations. She was born and
still lives in Richmond, Virginia. She is married with three children: Emily, a
Virginia Tech graduate and elementary school teacher; Wyatt, a student at
William & Mary, and; Townley, a student at Benedictine College Preparatory. Her
husband Channing is a self-employed residential builder.
