The youngest of three daughters, Dr. Lori wasaffectionately known in her family as her father’s “son”. As a youngster, sheloved going fishing with her Dad, watching baseball games, and hunting fleamarkets and yard sales for antiques that would end up in her #1 favoritespot–her Dad’s garage. Living through the Great Depression and World War II,Dr. Lori’s parents instilled their belief in education and their appreciationfor the value of old objects. They encouraged Dr. Lori to follow her interestsin the field. Thus, she earned several academic degrees in history includingthe Ph.D. from Penn State University. After years teaching in universityclassrooms and working as a museum director, Dr. Lori was inspired to startappraising antiques after an unexpected encounter with a 75-year-old woman.”This woman told me her story. She had recently sold an historic GeorgeWashington document for $50 that was worth $50,000! She said she needed the $50to pay her electric bill. When I met her, I thought, this woman could be mymother—anyone could make that mistake.” Dr. Lori says, “That woman’s mistakeinspired me to share my education and expertise. So, I do just that presentingover 150 antique appraisal shows and appraising 20,000 objects that audiencesbring me to review every year. I have been featured on NBC’s The Tonight Show,Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, and Anderson Live for my straightforward andfunny approach to antiques, too.” Dr. Lori is an award-winning TVpersonality and the star antiques appraiser on the hit TV reality show AuctionKings which airs on the Discovery channel.
