Lori DuRussel, M.S., is an adoptive mom and has worked in the adoption field for over 10 years. She was the Education and Outreach Coordinator for a child placement agency and designed the current curriculum to meet the Wisconsin State requirements. She believes that families come in all shapes and sizes, and she is excited to help new parents navigate the adoption maze. Lori has a master's degree in educational psychology (cognitive science), with a focus on adult education and learning.
Her main responsibility for the last 15 years has been as mom to her four children (two adopted internationally, two born into her family). By far this is the most challenging, sometimes frustrating, and gratifying job that she's ever held. She is honored to be able to share her experiences with new families through the parent education that she does.
