Lori Mohr

Lori Ann Mohr is the ELC Director, a teacher, and a childcare provider. She has an AA, focusing on child development and psychology, from LBCC and has been with the center since 1991. Working with young children has always been her passion. One of her joys from the job is the view the children have of the world and their wonderful stories.

When not at work Lori likes to walk and hike (let’s keep the trails simple). If you have met Lori, you know that she considers her hair her most important “accessory”.
