My name is LoriLee and I'm the owner, journalist/reporter/promoter for What's going on in the Lehigh Valley. I'm also a mom of four that I adore.
In 2011, I started WGOLV as a hobby for my friends and it grew from there. Now with over 67k on Facebook and increasing daily, it's grown into a very popular publication. It reaches anywhere from 1-2 million monthly on facebook alone.
I love the outdoors, my family and my fur baby, Ginger. I enjoy weight training, nature, wildlife, music, nature, photography, dancing, fairs and taking my kids to the beach. On the side I am a personal trainer and promotional model. I also have been in numerous films and commercials.
I've been very involved with the music community for years as a promoter (booked bands at various venues) and love music. I have been classically trained as a vocalist and started playing piano at 7 . I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania and have my degree is in Elementary Education.
As part of student teaching in college, I had the opportunity to live and teach on the Hopi reservation in Keams Canyon, Arizona. It will always be one of my fondest memories. I spent my weekends in an adobe home high on top of a mesa in the village of Walpi and attended ceremonies in an underground kiva.
Before WGOLV, I started my own organic baby boutique and sold products all over the world for 10 years while raising my little ones. I also had a small shop in Dorneyville where I taught classes. I created my own organic product line and had things manufactured in various parts of the country. The moses baskets were made out of natural/organic wood which I sourced from a renewable forest and had shipped via flat bed to the Amish where they soaked it and wove it into beautiful baskets.
I've always loved helping others, volunteering whenever possible, helping with benefit events and of course being a mom - that's been the biggest blessing in my life. My youngest is a football player and I love watching football and attending the games.
As WGOLV has grown, I've been working on developing a team. I have a few interns and always looking to add more. I'm also looking for additional writers, photographers, videographers and those who enjoy public relations and marketing/sales.
