Dr. Lori graduated optometry school from Salus University and went on to complete a Primary Care/Ocular Disease residency at The Eye Institute in Philadelphia, PA. She is board certified by the American Board of Optometry. She has held licenses to practice optometry in PA, NJ, TX, CA, SC, and NC. She has practiced in various ophthalmologic and optometric settings. Because of these varied experiences, from pediatric ophthalmology to examining residents in local nursing homes, she is confident managing eye disease, providing post-operative care for glaucoma, cataract, and refractive surgery, and treating amblyopia. She is a proud member of VOSH NC and has participated in mission trips to Central and South America, and Africa. Dr. Lori and her family have called southeastern NC home since 2010. They enjoy all that this lovely coastal region has to offer. She feels fortunate to serve the community of Hampstead and is currently accepting new patients for routine (glasses and contact lens), medical, and emergency eye care.
