Beginning her BarreAmped® journey as a student in Suzanne Bowen’s classes, Lori continued to seek out training in the method. In 2011 she was certified in all levels as a BarreAmped® instructor and added BarreAmped® Teacher Trainer the next year. Having grown up in gymnastics and dance classes, and graduating college with a degree in Communications (Broadcasting & Theatre), teaching this mind-body fitness method was a natural fit. She stepped into the role of Director of Operations in July 2017.

For 9 years she daily encouraged, inspired, and instructed clients in Nashville, TN. In 2021, she moved south and now calls Karis Fitness her studio home in Columbia, TN.

Lori is an AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor and pursues self-study in the fields of anatomy, pro-metabolic nutrition, and herbal remedies. She and her husband enjoy time at home together with their two rescue dogs just as much as they love a good adventure.
