Lori is a strong survivor. In 2009 she faced her first battle with cancer and won. All the while, she was starting to see her Life Coaching clients benefit from her proven system and the positive impact she was having in their lives to become the best versions of themselves.


In 2014, Lori discovered a return of cancer when going through fertility treatment. While going through alternative “mistletoe treatment” in Durango, Colorado in 2015, she saw the success of varying types of wellness techniques with different practitioners to fight her cancer.  She thought why not apply the same principle to her coaching business—she developed a system addressing the 6 areas of life in her Life Wheel to achieve balance in all areas of life.  This is where she first saw the vision for Focus Life Group.

She went into remission but in 7 months, the cancer came back in 3 places.  This is the first time she ever felt unsure of the future.  After chemo and radiation, she endured a miraculous healing. She quickly realized that she needed to take the steps to train other coaches to apply the same principles and techniques that she uses and she started The University under the NICC.

Fast forward to 2018 and the cancer came back. Lori never gave up and overcame it again through perseverance. At this point, she was even more determined than ever to train coaches and hand-pick her choice of coaches to form The Focus Life Group. Her and her team have been changing lives ever since.
