Growing up in Minnesota, Lori thought she was destined to live a mid-western life. And then she discovered whitewater kayaking. To satisfy her growing craving for whitewater, Lori moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2010. While kayaking is her true passion, she discovered on a Grand Canyon trip how adventurous and luxurious rafting trips can also be. Now, as long as she's on the water in the company of adventure and great people, she's a happy boater.
