  • Lori has authored two hour-long multimedia presentations on cardiac nutrition for registered dietitians across the country.
  • She has served over 16,000 people through outpatient counseling, acute hospital care, community outreach, and (her favorite) written nutrition education materials.
  • Lori has been a vegetarian for nearly 20 years and is genuinely elated when people eat their vegetables.


Lori's interest in writing began in elementary school when she won first prize in a school-wide writing contest. She went on to dual-major in English/Creative Writing and become Senior of the Year in Spanish (with a 20+ page literary paper written in Spanish to boot). Lori has worked as a registered dietitian (RD) since 2013, and she loves the challenging combination of writing to persuade people toward healthy eating. She began writing for the Daily Meal in 2023 with a slant toward nutrition and wellness in every piece.


Lori earned her bachelor's degree in English (with Creative Writing emphasis) from Presbyterian College in South Carolina, followed by a master's of science in Human Nutrition from Winthrop University.
