Lori Severson Ms.

Lori Severson spent many years in the corporate business world focused on the people side of business. She now focuses on helping others take inspired action as a writer, speaker and coach. She lives in the Southwest with her husband, daughter and several furry family members. Lori's debut novel will be available at the Tucson Festival of Books, and 5% of her annual book sale proceeds go to an organization focused on whales. She has loved whales since she was in junior high. Her second novel is in progress and she expects it to be out in 2018.

Lori volunteers for the Girls Rule Foundation which targets building self esteem and leadership skills for girls age 12-18. Arizona is the 3rd worst place to be a teen girl. Lori hopes to change that.
