Q: What’s one of your favorite things to do when you’re not working at MADD?

Lori: “I like to cook whenever I have the time. I also like to bake.  The creativity in cooking and baking is inspiring to me.”

 

Q: Any favorite food?\

Lori: “Anything green normally and rice.  After living so many years in Asia, rice is a comfort food.”

 

Q: Do you have any specific goals when it comes to working with MADD?

Lori: “I would like to make it okay and acceptable for people to think about how they their transportation plan before they are impaired and for people to understand it’s not just alcohol that impairs us.  It’s legal drugs and prescriptions as well as illegal drugs.  At the end of the day, education and knowledge is key.  I want to be approachable and positive and share hope and positivity.”

 

Q: Are there any movies or TV shows you love?

Lori: “Any shows about tiny houses.  I’m obsessed with them at the moment.  And, I enjoy The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.”

 

Q: What makes you passionate about MADD?

Lori: “Meeting people in the community, I realize the truth in the statistic that 2 out of 3 people will be impacted by a drunk driving crash in their lifetime.  However, it seems that no one talks about it until a tragedy happens in their lives.  I want to change that because it’s  a 100% preventable crime.  And, it’s so simple to solve – just plan an alternative way home using a designated driver, Uber or taxi.  Seeing and hearing the pain and suffering caused by substance-impaired driving is what drives me.  I want a community where I don’t have a job because MADD will not be needed.”

 

Q: Do you think there’s anything you can do to stop drunk driving?

Lori: “Always talking about it and being an example in the community.”

 

Q: What made you interested in working with MADD?

Lori: “I have always volunteered or worked with nonprofit organizations wherever I lived because it makes me feel more involved in the community. In Southwest Florida, my kids were just getting their drivers’ licenses at the time when MADD was hiring, and I wanted to make the roads more safe for them and all drivers.”

 

Q: A lot of people don’t take drugged driving seriously. Do you have any ideas in raising awareness for drugged driving?

Lori: “I agree with Malaina, get away from drunk or drugged driving to substance impaired driving. Just shift it to any substance that will impair people.
