LoriSalgado

LORI SALGADO, PhD

President with DBSA-CS since 2013

With an undergraduate major in child development (and a minor in theatre), Lori chose the obvious career path of … you guessed it … joining the Air Force.  She spent much of the next 2 decades travelling the world as a KC-135 pilot and engaging in various leadership roles.  More recently you can find Lori in the classroom, teaching students (junior high through PhD) in an array of subjects.  Lori enjoys researching and speaking about mental health, especially with teens and parents.

Constantly striving to exercise more with her 2 dogs, make regular vacuuming a higher priority, and consume a lot less Diet Coke, Lori’s most absorbing pursuit—in collaboration with her husband—is parenting their four 18-year-olds as they navigate the wonders of young adulthood.
