Lori Heatherington

Like most moms, Lori has always been close to her daughter, and when she was asked to the senior prom, the subject of after-prom parties came up and Lori wasn't pleased with the idea that nothing was being done.
Lori was aware of how After Prom parties these days were more than just a rite-of-passage celebration. Living near a metropolitan area as big as Dallas/Fort Worth, there were always news stories about "party incidents" and too many After Prom deaths resulting from alcohol, drugs or just teens out of control and unsupervised.

She contacted her daughter's high school and learned that there were no plans to offer an After Prom party, and that the school would probably not want to be involved with such an event. Upon learning this, Lori took it upon herself to organize other like-minded parents and began laying the groundwork for an After Prom party for the senior class. It was a phenomenal success. Thus, the foundation for this handbook was created.

Lori makes her home in northwest Montana with her husband Tom, her daughter (the inspiration for this work), three cats and her 100+ lb. Great Pyrenees "puppy", Lilly Belle. Lori holds a marketing degree from a prominent private university in Texas.
