I wish I could tell you about Lori Merriewether. I’ll do my best with words, but to really know and understand her skills and talents, you have to experience her.
I’ve worked closely with Lori in two important capacities: developing programming for youth and providing counseling, support, accountability and stability for youth.
Lori is passionate about everything she does, and she gives her all to every task no matter how large or small. She is especially gifted in the area of working with people, youth in particular. She is so attuned to those with whom she engages that she has a “knowing”, an ability to intuit those thoughts and feelings that are not expressed or that are difficult to express. She is compassionate without enabling. She demands accountability without harshness. She balances these two things seemingly effortlessly.
Lori is also a consummate professional who goes the extra mile to get things done and done properly. There is no halfway for her. She always gives 100%. She’s honest, trustworthy and never fails to follow through. She isn’t satisfied with the status quo and continually strives to improve her skill set and herself as a person. It was a joy to work with her, to learn from her and to grow with her. I would recommend Lori to anyone without hesitation.
