Original. Authentic. Powerful. Award-winning author. Spiritual Mentor. Flawsome human. Digital nomad. A geek and a nerd in love with personal development, feminine empowerment and social justice. 

Because really, how else can dreams come true unless we're willing to grow, reclaim our personal power, and live in a society itself that is just to all? 

The truth is that whatever our soul's purpose is, we WILL live it. We may live it in regret, live it in mediocrity, or live it fully, but we WILL live it. 

So the real question is:  how will you live yours?

Lori Anne imagines a world in which every being is fully supported to embody and express their dreams and purpose in the highest and best form possible. What an incredible world that can be!

Her work and writing supports women who are ready and willing to grow from the inside out, realize their visions, and stand in their truth to create the life they've been craving. By identifying one's truest, personal core values, eliminating roadblocks and fears, and being willing to step into their most joy-filled dreams, women will change the world.

Born in the Pacific Northwest, Lori Anne loves the outdoors. In her spare time, she enjoys travelling, scuba diving, cross stitch, hiking, painting, wood carving and the company of good friends.

Articles on Medium.com: Lori Anne's Personal Blog

I have thoughts and opinions on all kinds of topics that I share via my blog on Medium. I hold a vision of living in a world in which every human being is fully supported and encourage to live their calling, even as it evolves throughout their lives.


There are all kinds of things that relate to that vision that I comment about. Whether it's part of my personal story, or thoughts about the journey of women, or comments about issues of social justice, you'll find it all on Medium.

Spiritual Integrity Podcast: Lori Anne's Personal Podcast

Life is incredible food for thought and fuel for new choices. To live our best lives, I believe we must be true to ourselves - and quite often that means asking questions of ourselves and of life that are not typical. It may mean facing things we would much rather avoid. It may mean simply exploring different aspects of things until we find our own truth. 

This podcast is separate from the Rise 'n Shine Radio Show. It is Lori Anne's personal views on life, love, spiritual principles, social justice and whatever else crosses her mind. This is not practiced or scripted. It is raw, real, and about being human.
