“Lori is a fabulous speaker who engaged the audience through verbal interaction, dancing moves, and reciprocal emotional cues. Informative and entertaining, “Transformation at ANY Age” has taught us how to transform ourselves, practice abundance, gratitude and positivity, and has led us to understand that we can all achieve so much in just a thought.” -Elena Granoth, Library Director Morris Public Library
