Retention Specialist in Lawrence, Kansas
Hatito! Hello! I am Lori (she/her/hers) from the beautiful people of the Shawnee and Delaware Tribes of Oklahoma! I was born in Tulsa, OK, and grew up in Abilene, KS.
I graduated from the University of Kansas in 2019 with an MSE in Higher Education Administration. I am also a 2017 graduate of Haskell Indian Nations University with a Bachelor of Arts in Indigenous and American Indian Studies. Haskell helped me develop a passion for student success, which is where YOU fit into my goal of helping students get degrees!
I also earned an Associate Degree in Media Communications at Haskell and love writing and creating videos whether it’s news related or just for fun.
Other things I love include: Rage Against the Machine, laughing, the movie Rushmore, multiple Native artists, cheeseburgers, Merle Haggard, the book "Power and Place" by Vine Deloria, Jr. and Dr. Dan Wildcat, rain, toast, Hunter S. Thompson, chewing gum, singing super loud, and TACOS….probably going to Fuzzy’s tonight!
Aside from my love of tacos, the most important thing I want you to know about me is that I am committed to ensuring your experience at Haskell will be completely amazing! So, make an appointment, grab a cup of coffee, and let’s drink to everything you are going to accomplish! Welcome to the Haskell family! Cheers!
