Lori is a physician assistant and a certified sexuality counselor in the Department of Surgery at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Division of Surgical Oncology and a member of the UW Health Breast Center. She specializes in caring for patients with breast concerns, the management of issues related to receiving breast cancer treatment and breast cancer survivorship.
Lori knows breast concerns can cause a lot of anxiety. She takes time to listen to each person and provide education, reassurance and support. She helps patients understand what’s happening and connects them with helpful services like genetics, nutrition, pain management, psychology and sexual health.
Lori helped develop the Women's Integrative Sexual Health (WISH) Program. She and her colleagues evaluate and treat women with sexual health concerns related to cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Lori also teaches Yoga for Cancer, helping people learn about how movement, breathing and mindfulness can positively impact their life after a cancer diagnosis.
Lori spends her free time outside when possible, hiking, biking, gardening, paddling and camping. She also enjoys reading and spending time with family and friends.
My hope is that when patients leave the clinic, they feel like they were heard, they feel like they got the answers that they needed and they feel reassured.
