Lorie Jo was raised in a small town in Kansas, spent time in Chicago and eventually moved to Colorado before settling here in Phoenix with her fiance' Sal. Her daughter Camille has followed in her footsteps and is also a dental assistant here in Phoenix. Lorie Jo enjoys cooking, sports, reading and just taking in the beautiful outdoors.
