Tori developed a passion for working with teens when she and her husband providing emergency housing for single pregnant teens and young women for eight years. She began in 2001 as a volunteer with Teen Decision’s predecessor program, and quickly found that her energetic communication style and genuine concern for teens helped her connect easily with youth. Besides serving as director of Teen Decision, Tori also conducts parent workshops and writes the Teen Decision blog. Her favorite things in the world are to read good literature, travel, keep up on current events, and spend time with her family. Oh…and after almost 20 years speaking to teens, she still she likes nothing better than to have fun with teens in a classroom setting as our veteran educator.
