Originally from Northeast Pennsylvania, Lori relocated to the Reno area in 2020 following a travel nursing assignment. Both she and her husband fell in love with the area and decided to make it their permanent home. Lori is a dedicated professional with 17 years of nursing experience, primarily in emergency and trauma care, before transitioning to her role as a nurse practitioner. The desire to see the long-term outcomes of her patients and build lasting relationships inspired her shift to family practice. She has three grown children and a spirited German Shepherd named Libby. Lori is thrilled to join the Community Health Alliance team and is committed to providing exceptional care to the community.
