Lori has always been an animal lover and “informal” rescuer all of her life. Bringing home the strays that crossed her path from the time she was a child, including dogs, cats, turtles, hamsters, rabbits and even a fox. Lori began to get into “formal” rescue in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina when she went with a rescue group down to New Orleans to help with the overwhelming issues affecting the abandoned animals. Lori continued to work with both national and local rescue organizations, leading her to meet Jason Flatt in 2008. As Jason began his venture in rescue, Lori’s efforts began to align with his, making her one of the first volunteers to come on board with FTTF when it officially became a 501(c)3 in 2009. Lori has worn many hats through the years, but now spends most of her time on the business side of the rescue working with donors, volunteers, banking, and strategic planning to keep the rescue running smoothly. Lori is an integral part of FTTF and oversees many of the behind the scenes duties delegated to various volunteers. Lori is employed by Ragan Enterprises, Inc., her family’s mechanical contracting business, where she manages the office and oversees the finances. Lori resides with her husband, two dogs, two cats, and an iguana. She stays busy with her two grown children and four grandchildren, who all reside in the Metro Atlanta area. She is involved with the grandchildren’s school and social activities. Her hobbies include reading, baking, and gardening.
