My daughter just competed in the Mrs International Pageant in Chicago and finished in the top 10. We are all very proud of her and all the great work she is doing for a great cause.
A little bio.

She is a former college professor of advertising for the State University of New York, and currently owns a national advertising agency called ?freshbrick? together with her partner and husband, Don.
At age 37, Lori is the very proud mother of Justin Michael who is about to embark on the exciting world of junior high school, and also the privileged stepmom of Ashley Rose who currently lives and attends college in Manhattan.
Lori?s unwavering commitment to educating women and girls about pursuing healthy, intimate partner relationships has led her to becoming an active member of the Board of Directors for both the Victims Information Bureau as well as for the renowned organization End Violence Against Women International. She has also appeared in several venues as a celebrity guest speaker and host on behalf of LA Dodgers Manager Joe Torre?s Safe at Home Foundation.
Lori is regularly spotted at a myriad of abuse prevention programs and events around the country, including her invitation to be this year?s exclusive guest speaker at The Race To Erase Domestic Violence held annually on Mother?s Day in Central Park, New York that is attended by thousands of runners and spectators from all around the world.
In recognition of her years of selfless efforts that have had a significant impact around the nation, the United States Department of Justice?s Office for Victims of Crime just recently presented Lori with an honorable 2008 Certificate of Appreciation for her nationwide volunteerism that encourages respectful relationships, healthy marriages, and peaceful, happy families
