Lori Burger
Virginia Curriculum Specialist
I earned my Masters in Elementary Education and my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and wanted to pursue a career that would use both disciplines! Hence, this position! I have worked hard my entire life, physically and mentally to reach my goals. I have had my own businesses for several years of my life as well as fulfilling positions working for others who have taught me so much about myself. I also have two awesome kids and two awesome step kids!
