Lori started the Phoenix Swimming team in 2010 after coaching in New England since she graduated from Bates College in 2002. Over her coaching career, she has coached, and continues to coach, swimmers of all ages and ability levels. Lori believes strongly in establishing strong fundamentals and technique, championing and rewarding hard work, and building a team first culture. Under her coaching, swimmers have achieved numerous New England and Eastern Zone records, Junior and Senior National qualifying times, and have been ranked in the top 10 nationally. Lori was selected in 2014 as an assistant coach and in 2016 as a head manager for the USA Swimming Eastern Zone Select Camp. In October, she will be head manager for the 2017 National Select Camp held at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO
