She is a recognized leader among family and juvenile court referees across the state, having received three awards from the Referees Association of Michigan and currently serving as its Vice President.
Lorie graduated from the University of Michigan and Wayne State University Law School. She is grateful to the public educators where she grew up, in Oak Park and Southfield, that set her on this path of opportunity to help others even though she came from a family of modest means.
