Lori Vaclavik

Executive Director

Growing up in Cleveland, Ohio, Lori always knew she wanted to live “out west.” In 1984, she and her husband packed up a pickup truck and have called Colorado home ever since. Lori has served as executive director of Bridge of Life since 2011 and passionately believes that everyone deserves the chance to live a healthy life, regardless of where they are born. She also knows that ordinary people can do extraordinary things when united by a common cause and she is continually inspired by Bridge of Life’s volunteers and supporters. Lori believes that Bridge of Life has a dual mission of serving those in need of its services and providing its volunteers with a life-changing experience that perpetuates ripples of compassion long after they return home. Lori has 20 years of nonprofit leadership experience and 10 years of experience in the private sector.

Like most Coloradans, Lori loves being outdoors in nature. She also loves to travel and adores spending time with animals, books, music, family, and friends.
